In December the Idaho Business Review released their list of the 2020 Women of the Year. 50 individuals were recognized out of the 220 nominations and applications, and included those in a wide range of industries and professions, from education and health care to science, government and fine arts.
Among this year’s honorees were a few familiar names in and around the advertising world:
Congratulations go out to these three, and to all of the honorees.
This year’s gala will be held on Wednesday, March 11th at the Boise Centre, where the Idaho Business Review will also name the 2020 Woman of the Year — the overall top winner based on scores from the judges and staff.
It’s been entirely too long since we’ve made the rounds and checked in on shops around the state, so let’s remedy that. Starting with Fahlgren Mortine in Boise.
In July of 2016, David Jenson joined Fahlgren Mortine in their Boise office as managing director and senior vice president. He was previously a co-founder of Allan & Jenson, a marketing research and strategy consulting firm with offices in Boise and Los Angeles. Jenson is a familiar face around Boise, serving as Oliver Russell’s managing director from 2007 to 2012.
At the same time, Shea Andersen was also promoted to a vice president role in the Boise office. In the two years since joining the company, Anderson has been influential in the growth of the business through new and existing client relationships, as well as development and mentorship of the Boise team.
Then, in December, Sestero was also named one of the Idaho Business Review’s 2017 Women of the Year. She, along with 49 other finalists, will be recognized at a reception, dinner and awards gala at the Boise Centre in March, where one of the 50 will be honored as the Idaho Business Review Woman of the Year.
These, and the other 35 of this year’s Accomplished under 40 will be recognized at an awards ceremony on June 13th, and the 2013 Accomplished under 40 magazine will be published in the June 14th edition of the Idaho Business Review.
