New hire at Hanna & Associates

Hanna & Associates in Coeur d’Alene has added Ian Shea to their staff.

Ian was most recently at 14Four in Spokane, Washington, and joins Hanna & Associates as a web developer. He has worked on interactive campaigns for clients such as Harley Davidson, the NFL, Slim Jim, McDonald’s and the Department of Homeland Security. Ian is a graduate of Eastern Washington University with a BA in graphic communication.

Congratulations Ian.

Editor’s note: This was originally written as a “new hires” (plural) post, but after a quick spin through LinkedIn, it appears that the second one was a short-lived stint an Hanna.
