A few job openings we’ve come across recently:
At Ivie & Associates:
Last week we lost our beloved agency founder, Ken Stoltz, after a courageous two-year battle with brain cancer. For more than 20 years, Ken demonstrated the value of relationships, staying inspired every day, and having a passionate enthusiasm for life. We will continue to honor his vision and legacy in our creative work and the wonderful company culture he inspired. He will be deeply missed. Please join us for a celebration of life this Sunday, June 24th, at Crane Creek Country Club from 3pm – 6pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Ken's memory to the American Brain Tumor Association. LINK IN BIO
Ken Stoltz passed away on Wednesday, June 13th, following a two-year battle with brain cancer.
Born in 1951 in Pasadena, California, Ken was the second of seven children. He spent his childhood in California, and later found his way to Flagstaff, Arizona, where he graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature.
In 1978, Ken and his wife Terry moved to Pocatello, Idaho. There, he and Jim Steele founded Steele, Stoltz & Associates. Over the years that agency grew, a Boise office was opened, and by the 1990s it had become the largest in the state.
In 1997, Ken launched his own agency, Stoltz Marketing Group, and for more than 20 years grew that business, developing a large roster of clients in a diverse range of industries.
He is survived by his wife Terry, his children Brian, Jaime, and Ashley, their respective spouses, and five grandchildren.
Fahlgren Mortine, a nationally recognized marketing and communications agency, is looking to add an Account Executive to its Boise office.
The agency seeks an Account Executive with one to three years of experience who will be responsible for supporting relationships with business-to-business and business-to-consumer clients. This individual will be responsible for day-to-day activities on communications (PR) and marketing (advertising) projects, as well as supporting the development, implementation and measurement of integrated campaigns across paid, earned, owned and shared channels. The Account Executive will be expected to work collaboratively as part of a team and manage client deliverables and timelines independently.

While SOVRN celebrated their anniversary with a block party that included a $10K giveaway.
Not to be left out, Drake Cooper — the elder statesman of the group — celebrated their 40th anniversary with an event at Cinder Wines.
40 years will go by in a flash if you surround yourself with good people, good clients and have fun.

Congratulations to all on the milestones.
First and foremost, you should be able to write. Headlines, content, storylines, fun stuff—not technical stuff. Coming in a close second is that you need to be able to come up with ideas and concepts. We have a team that can bring just about any idea to life, but we want another great creative mind to add ideas, opinions, perspective and experience. You need to be confident enough to present any idea to the team and take constructive feedback without feeling it’s a personal attack.
Things you better be if you apply:
– Born to write irresistible prose
– Able to take feedback without taking your soccer ball home
– Flexible without being a pushover
– Self-driven, motivated & confident
– More effective as part of a team
Things that don’t make the cut:
Some recent moves and new hires of late:
Christina Hirsch recently joined DaviesMoore as an Account Executive.
Over at Foerstel Design, Katy Kithcart and Greg Montemurro have joined the team as Junior Art Director and Art Director, respectively.
