NEW YORK, March 8, 2016 -- Helen James CEO Investis, the global leader in digital communications for corporate and investor relations, today announced the appointment of Don Scales as CEO, Investis Inc. Scales joins the business with immediate effect and will be based in the New York office.


Previously CEO of iCrossing, the global digital marketing and SEO agency, Scales steered the business to remarkable growth over his seven-year tenure.
