About Us

Your digital marketing team

Meet Your Flight Crew

We are a little nerdy, super friendly, pretty funny (so we think), and we probably curse more than we should. We are defending our clients from Internet trolls, after all. We aim to be the digital marketing team you always wanted but couldn’t have until now.

Here’s us. When you’re done scoping us out, tell us about you. We’d love to hear from you.

How can we help you

Our Team


Doug Lacombe

Our president and founder Doug Lacombe remembers when there was no web. He was at a newspaper, The StarPhoenix, which, for you kids, was the thing before the web. He didn’t realize hand coding the SP’s site in 1995 would eventually lead to the demise of all mainstream media. Oops!

An MBA and a couple of world tours later, plus stints in the telco and newswire industries, make Doug a class A certified Internet nerd and an experienced digital strategist. If you want good corporate digital strategy that syncs with old media, you need Doug and his crew on your team. For the record, he’s still really sorry he broke newspapers.

Director of Content & Strategy

Heather Murray

After eight years in the energy sector, there likely isn’t a communications challenge Heather hasn’t faced without a determined smile, a strong opinion and a laser focus on advancing business objectives. As Communicatto’s Director of Content & Strategy, Heather has set her sights on conquering the digital world with her whip smart team of writers, community managers, and strategists.

When she isn’t overseeing the development of kick-butt strategies and compelling blog posts, you can find her city hopping to check out the latest greatest band, glued to her Kindle, devouring the latest news headlines or instagramming pictures of her dog.

If your business could benefit from an amazing digital strategy, compelling social media content or more effective storytelling, you need Heather and her team!

Director of Digital Marketing

Robin Eldred

Digital Marketing is complex and ever-changing. Robin is a whiz at making the complex simple. Or at least in hiding the complexities so you don’t have to worry about them! He’s a guru at planning and organizing, with a super tight attention to detail, which is extremely useful in today’s multi-channel landscape. A web guy from way back – he built and sold a web business over a ten year period – Robin is certified in lots of stuff (think PMP) but so far is not certifiable.

Robin knows how to target audiences like a champ, and will squeeze every bit of value from each online marketing dollar you spend. Around the office, Robin is often heard muttering “but what about conversions?” If amplifying your message to specific audiences is required, Robin’s your man.
