Dixon Schwabl Inc. has made some personnel changes.
 
The Victor, Ontario County-based firm has added Mark Stone as managing partner and chief creative officer to the company’s creative team. In addition, both Ann McAllister and Marshall Statt are now associate creative directors.

 “As we entered 2014, we made it a priority to recruit the best of the best, and it was our goal to attract nationally experienced talent to lead our creative team,” CEO Lauren Dixon said.

Stone has worked on major award-winning national advertising initiatives. He leads nearly 30 people in the interactive, audio, video and print production, and creative departments.

Prior to his current post, Stone worked at Roberts Communications Inc. for six years as creative director.

In McAllister’s new role as associate creative director, she will oversee the creative strategy, branding and art direction for several national and regional brands, company officials said. Previously, McAllister was contracted by Dixon Schwabl as a creative supervisor and was principal of Ann McAllister Art Direction and Design. She also worked at Partners + Napier Inc. as creative supervisor and senior art director.
 
Statt is responsible for monitoring the creative properties for some national and regional brands, including Hargray Communications Group Inc., the MCC Foundation, Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Inc. and Friendly Senior Services Inc. Previously, Statt worked as a creative supervisor.
