Arrivals and departures

What can I say, I’ve seen way too many planes overhead the last few months.

There’s been a lot of movement at shops in the past several months. Here’s an undoubtedly incomplete snapshot of things we’ve seen.

At 116 & West:

In: Creative Director Kelly Knopp (who returns to the shop after a period of freelance work that included the launch of Boise OG).

Out: Adam Rosenlund, to a new role outside the agency.


At CLM:

In: Copywriter Cameron Stewart, Account Coordinator Antonio Gallegos, Video Producer Laura Munsil, Digital Media Coordinator Vanessa Almaraz, and Media Planner & Buyer Oscar Mariscal (who returns for a second stint with the agency).

Out: Joelle Alexander (to the Navy), per CLM’s Instagram post.


At Duft Watterson:

In: Account Manager Alyssa Mayer, Account Manager Mckenzie Halling, Content and Digital Manager Cody Howard, Full-Stack Developer and Software Engineer Isaac Borup, Videographer and Photographer Michael Bonocore, and Growth Strategist Jack Loop.


At Foerstel:

In: Junior Web Developer Nathan Montgomery, and Art Director Ricci Gertz, according to recent updates to Foerstel’s website.

Out: Janell Count (Happy Retirement!) and Kaylee Wells (to relocation), per Foerstel’s Instagram post.


At Reynolds + Myers:

In: Director of Partnerships Chris Blanchard.


At Stoltz Marketing Group:

In: Senior Account Manager Kirstin Delp, Senior Account Manager Genny Heikka, Account Coordinator Paige Johndrow, Senior Digital Producer Jeff Mensch, Graphic Designer Deanna Scherrer, and Graphic Designer Clara Thamke.

Out: Katherine Johnson, Jake Smith, and Kyle Fountain, to new roles outside the agency.


Again, this is certain to be an incomplete list of comings and goings. There’s always more happening just under the surface…

Carew Whoa!

Big news this morning for our friends over at Carew Co.

Earlier today it was announced that BrandCraft is expanding into Boise with the acquisition of Carew Co.

Based in the Richland, Washington, with an additional office in Spokane, BrandCraft is a “growth marketing firm” that offers a full suite marketing, advertising, and production services.

Paul Carew also shared some thoughts and insights on the change in a post on the BrandCraft blog.

Said BrandCraft CEO Torey Azure, “Adding Boise to our expansion is a big move in the right direction and I couldn’t be happier with the team that we are bringing on board. People matter, the right people matter, and we believe we struck gold with the new team. We couldn’t make this move, and be this confident in it, without adding the Carew Co. team.”

With this acquisition, Paul Carew now serves as Director of Creative & Content at BrandCraft. Also joining from Carew Co. are Senior Designers Thomas Walsh and Shailey Katsilometes, and Copywriter Julie Hahn as a contract partner.

Congratulations to everyone involved. We look forward to seeing what’s next.
