People on the move

Catching up on recent (and possibly not so recent) new hires and promotions.

Foerstel shared – via Instagram – that they’ve added Abbi Page to their team as their newest Art Director.

We also got word that Max White has been promoted to Creative Director and Jessica Holmes to Associate Creative Director over at CLM, following the departure of John Liebenthal earlier this year. Separately, they’ve also added Morgan Weber to their team as a Digital Designer.

So, you’re looking for a new gig

Here are a few openings that have popped up recently. In no particular order:

In addition to the Art Director position we previously noted, Foerstel is looking to add a Junior Designer to their team. And for a change of pace, they’re inviting applicants to submit their materials, and if selected, join them for what they’re calling a “VIP hiring event” with a speed dating style interview process. More details about that here.


Drake Cooper is in search of a Marketing Analyst, a Front End Developer / Designer (contract), and an Associate Producer (DC/Studio).


Stoltz Marketing Group is looking to add an Account Manager to their team, according to their recent job opening posted on LinkedIn.


Finally, Quad is after a Senior Graphic Designer to work onsite at a Boise-based client’s location.

Destination CLM

It seems that CLM is the place to take that next step in your agency career as of late, if the trio of new hires they recently announced is to be used as an indicator.

Senior account manager Josh Mercaldo moved to CLM from Drake Cooper, where he spent the past decade as an account director.

Greg Montemurro joined CLM’s creative team as a digital art director, after spending time with shops such as Foerstel, Stoltz Marketing Group, and Wire Stone.

Digital media manager Ben Adams moved to CLM from DaviesMoore, where he was most recently a senior digital marketing and media strategist.

Congratulations to all.

7th Annual Blanket & Donation Drive

For those who may not know, each year, Foerstel holds an annual blanket and donation drive in late-November / early-December. And this year is no exception.

With the temperatures dropping to low temps at night…it reminds us of the very reason that we started this drive seven years ago.

Foerstel annual blanket driveIt was a late night for a few of us leaving the office when we were walking to our cars and talking about going home to our dinners and our warm homes. That’s when we looked over to a group of people huddled under the connector trying desperately to stay warm. Then our conversation changed to going home and finding blankets from our closets to bring back for these people.

Since then, we have asked our kind, generous community to help out by just bringing in blankets. They can be gently used from your own home or new. We will distribute blankets at the Homeless Memorial Service, a special time to remember the homeless who have passed away in 2017. The service will be held at Corpus Christi, on 12/21/17.

However, if you don’t have blankets…we are also asking for other needed items such as these:

  • New or Gently Used Blankets
  • Twin Size Sheets
  • Interlocking Foam Floor Mats for Kids
  • Peanut Butter Granola Bars
  • Coffee
  • Non-Dairy Creamer

DROP OFF:

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!
