Catching up with…Fahlgren Mortine

Fahlgren Mortine

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.

From here we fast forward to October, when senior account executive Sophie Sestero was named BYP Young Professional of the Year.

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.

We’ll catch up with others as time allows.

How’s the Adventure Going?

As you may remember, earlier this year Drake Cooper and North by Northwest were casting a family from the Pacific Northwest for Adventures in Living — an online reality series to be developed for the Idaho Travel Council

As it turns out, they found their family, and are just past halfway through the vacation/filming.

Among the areas that they’ve either visited or are scheduled to visit:  Boise, Banks, the greater Island Park area, Sun Valley, Ketchum, Stanley, McCall, Hells Canyon, Lewiston, Coeur d’Alene, Wallace and Athol (Silverwood).

The full campaign is scheduled to launch in Spring 2010, complete with “Dedicated campaign website, complete with downloadable webisodes, podcasts, online maps and itineraries, e-coupons from statewide participants and communities and more.”  They’ve had some good press of the production, including coverage by the Associated Press, NPR, Idaho Mountain ExpressIdaho Business Review and more.

If you’d like to follow along with the rest of the trip, take a look at the Adventures in Living updates on Twitter

It’ll be interesting to keep an eye on the rest of this as it unfolds, and the full campaign kicks off next spring.
