New hires at CLM

Nicolet LaursenNicolet Laursen is a graphic designer and developer who joined CLM in June. She spent her childhood roughing it in the resort towns of South Lake Tahoe and Coeur d’Alene before attending Boise State University to pursue her career in design. From 2008-2011, she worked as an interactive designer at Balihoo before starting her own company. Outside of the day job, she spends her time painting in her studio, running in the foothills and volunteering for worthy causes.

Oscar MariscalOscar Mariscal is a media planner, who graduated from the College of Idaho in May with a degree in business and an emphasis in marketing. When he’s not identifying media opportunities for our clients, you’ll find him running around town setting PRs in his half marathon training or serving aces on the tennis courts.

Danielle StrolloFormer East Coaster Danielle Strollo graduated from Dartmouth College in 2007 with a degree in History, or as she puts it, “Cocktail Party Factoids.” She came to us this May after a stint with Boise-based Tick Tock Media Productions, and before that worked in writing and fundraising in the Bay Area. If she’s not wordsmithing, she’s playing soccer or training for a triathlon, so look out for her speeding through Ann Morrison Park.

Congratulations to all.

Ivie & Associates acquires CLM Marketing and Advertising

Word got to us a few days ago, and was confirmed via a press release recently issued by Ivie, that Ivie & Associates has acquired CLM Marketing & Advertising in Boise.

A couple of excerpts from the release:

CLM, founded in 2003, is a strategic creative agency headquartered in Boise, Idaho, with expertise and capabilities expanding the variety of client verticals that the Ivie family of companies serve.

Ivie has grown considerably since it was founded 21 years ago. Through acquisitions and client portfolio expansion, Ivie has achieved 40 percent year-over-year growth for the past five years. In a continuing effort to provide world-class marketing services to its clients, Ivie is constantly seeking knowledge and expertise in new areas of marketing and advertising. CLM was a perfect fit for the Ivie family of companies.

Ivie & Associates is headquartered in Flower Mound, Texas, and employs over 550 professionals throughout its U.S. and China offices.

Given that Ivie established a presence in Boise last fall, it will be interesting to see what—if anything—becomes of either local office.
