Familiar names among IBR’s 2020 Women of the Year

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:

Rhea Allen, Peppershock Media (Circle of Excellence)

Kate Holgate, Stoltz Marketing Group

Maria Walker, Drake Cooper

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.

The 2020 gala will celebrate women leaders from Salmon to Idaho Falls and Coeur d’Alene to Pocatello who have made their mark as healers, warriors, storytellers, trailblazers and connectors. It will also recognize women from Idaho’s history who have paved the way for leaders of today and will recognize women who are building on that legacy for the future. Tickets are available online, and the full list of honorees can be found on the Idaho Business Review’s site.

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.
