As much as I’d like to be writing about all kinds of new hires and promotions in and around the agency world, I’ve been out of the loop lately in that respect.
Most of my updates came from the “Your Business Community” of The Idaho Statesman. The only problem is, I don’t get the print edition of the newspaper. I read it online. Up until a few months ago, the Business Community updates were part of the online Business section each day. But that’s been a while.
So, to anyone that I may have missed writing about, congratulations on your new position, whatever it may be.
And to those who know of people that are on the move, by all means, let me know.
To the folks at The Idaho Statesman I have but one simple request — please put the Business Community updates back into the online edition of the paper.
UPDATE: The past few days I’ve noticed that the Business Community updates have shown back up on the Statesman’s website. Hmmm…
There’s an anonymous job listing posted on craigslist in which a “well-seasoned agency” is looking for an Account Manager/Executive. This person should have 5-7 years of experience, along with the standard laundry list of requirements. Full details about the job can be found here.
Side Door Media in Boise has an opening for a Managing Director of the agency. This person will be responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day function of the business, as well as leading the overall strategic direction. Full details about this position can be found here. (Courtesy of craigslist)
Es/drake in Boise has an opening for a PR Account Manager. This person should have 5-6 years of experience, either in an agency or corporate PR role. The full job posting can be seen here. (Courtesy of craigslist)
Here’s another one that I’ve added to the list of agencies in Idaho.
Curious Media is, by all appearances, a three six-person shop based out of Nampa, Idaho. According to their website, their services run the gamut, from graphic design and illustration to photography and DVD development.
Know of others that should be added to the list? Let me know.
The Temel office in Boise is typically a quiet shop. They do their work without drawing too much attention to themselves. But last night, they popped up on an alert that I received via email.
It seems that they, along with Digital Grit and Relevant Noise have merged to form Adverb Media. According to the press release, the three companies will retain their individual titles and branding, but will integrate their services, employees and clients under the direction of a single CEO.
What does that mean for the office here in Boise? Probably nothing in the short term. Eventually, I wouldn’t be surprised if the name on the door changes from Temel to Adverb Media at some time down the road.
Publicis in Boise is currently searching for an Interactive Art Director, with a minimum of three years experience, Flash skills, action script/programming skills and more. This is the latest iteration of their previous art director search, and they’ve fine-tuned their needs a bit more.
