Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Dave Fiore’s first byline came in the seventh grade when his English teacher surprised him by publishing his book report on “The Call of the Wild” in the school paper. A love of writing was born that year, as was an attachment to light blue corduroy and earth shoes. With his keen fashion sense intact, Dave has merged his 25 years’ experience as a professional writer, editor and accredited public relations professional into the foundation of a content marketing firm that has found a significant niche in the vast world of marketing options.
With a career focused squarely on the creation of great content, Dave learned about writing on a deadline as a marketing writer at the Tallahassee Democrat; learned to value the discipline as well as the art of good writing as editor of Tallahassee Magazine and learned the power of helping clients tell their story as a senior account manager with RB Oppenheim Associates, an award-winning integrated marketing firm.
As chief content officer at Fiore Communications, Dave serves as the company’s primary writer and gatekeeper for all content created by the firm. As the owner, he also serves as chief marketing strategist, client liaison and team motivator.
Dave earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Florida State University, where he met his wife, Robyn, in the Marching Chiefs. They have been married more than 29 years and have six wonderful children.
Digital Marketing Strategist
Liz Laffitte can’t remember when she fell in love with grammar, but the little boy whose love letter she returned, with corrections marked in red pen, probably can. While she’s not quite as harsh of an editor today, her love of reading, writing and editing has only grown.
Liz graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in English with a focus in Editing, Writing, and Media. She previously served as an editorial intern for Rowland Publishing where she contributed feature articles and other content for Tallahassee and Emerald Coast magazines.
As a digital marketing strategist for Fiore Communications, Liz helps create, implement and monitor social media marketing, email marketing, website management and organic and paid SEO strategies for our clients
Liz is married and welcomed her first son in November 2016. In her free time, she enjoys teaching herself web development and different programming languages.
Courteney Jones is a graduate of Florida State University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Media and Communication Studies and English: Editing, Writing and Media. Most recently, she worked as the features writer for the Council on Culture and Arts for Tallahassee/Leon County, writing weekly profiles on local artists and members of the arts community for the Tallahassee Democrat. Courteney is excited to flex her storytelling skills at Fiore Communications by writing and editing engaging content for clients.
She likes to spend her free time trying (and sometimes failing) to replicate Pinterest recipes and DIYs, pretending to enjoy running and, like any English major worth her salt, reading whatever she can get her hands on.
Domonique Davis has always loved entertaining others with her stories. Growing up, even her Christmas lists came complete with imaginative tales highlighting the importance of each item.
Domonique graduated from Florida A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. She went on to work in the university’s Office of Communications, where she wrote newsletter and magazine articles for the school’s various publications and told exciting 140-character stories as the social media manager.
As a member of the Fiore Communications team, Domonique’s narrative flare will come in handy when writing and editing content for clients.
In her free time, Domonique enjoys guessing the endings to movies and singing—usually off key—for her dog’s enjoyment.
Mandy Schnittker is a lover of the written word, as well as a serial list maker and self-proclaimed information sponge. She loves the teamwork and collaborative strategizing that comes with being part of the Fiore Communications crew.
Mandy’s background includes work in television, public relations, event planning and community relations – for local small business, major corporations (hint: if she’s drinking soda, she will only drink Coca-Cola products), and numerous charitable events and causes benefiting her two children.
Mandy has enjoyed being part of the Tallahassee community for nearly 20 years. You could say she was wooed by the city’s live oaks and canopy roads, the Seminole spirit – and, of course, her husband Dennis.
Content Marketing Assistant
Anna Fiore graduated in 2016 from Florida State University where she earned her communications degree with a focus in public relations. She assists with writing projects and provides marketing research support for our clients.
She has a love/hate relationship with HTML and is fluent in all things Instagram and Pinterest. And if you were wondering, the answer is yes, she is Dave’s favorite daughter.
Content Marketing Intern
Deanna Breiter is a senior at Florida State University where she is double majoring in Marketing and Psychology with a minor in Communications. A Miami native, it only took her four years to add “y’all” to her vocabulary, acquire a taste for sweet tea and come to terms with the fact that there are seasons other than summer and “slightly less summer.”
Deanna is a coffee enthusiast and a friend of dogs everywhere. Although she wishes she could stay a kid forever, she is excited to have found a passion for marketing and can’t wait to learn everything there is to know about content marketing at Fiore Communications.
