As noted in the Idaho Business Review, Aletia Flaherty has joined Rizen Creative as an Account Manager. She was previously a senior customer success manager at Jelli, and was with Adapt Management as senior project manager and media marketing manager prior to that.
Flaherty holds a bachelor’s degrees in communications and Spanish from Santa Clara University.
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.
While looking through this year’s 40 under 40 – also known as the 14th annual Idaho Business Review Accomplished under 40 list – several familiar names were among this year’s honorees, including:
Karianne Fallow, Red Sky Public Relations
John Hardesty, Bodybuilding.com
Carolyn Lodge, DaviesMoore
Jennie Myers, Drake Cooper
Amanda Watson, Red Sky Public Relations
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.
Congratulations to all.

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 Express, Idaho 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.
