New Hires at Red Sky

Red Sky Public Relations in Boise has added to its staff again.

Matt Compton recently joined the firm as an Account Executive specializing in public affairs, community outreach, issues campaign strategy and public involvement.

Prior to joining Red Sky, Matt was Community Director of the March of Dimes where he developed and maintained relationships with corporate and community donors and sponsors; developed state-specific awareness campaigns and advocated for vulnerable community members.

And their latest addition appears to be Kailyn Neils.  She is a recent graduate of Washington State University, and while we haven’t seen any formal announcements, word is that today was her first day.

Congratulations to both.


There’s a Whole Lot of Moving Going On

Maybe it’s the time of year. Perhaps it’s the amount of vacant office space available. Or it could be something entirely different.  No matter how you look at it, there’s a whole lot of moving going on in the agency world lately.

For example:

Red Sky Public Relations: Red Sky recently (well, within the past six months or so) moved their office from the space on 9th Street to what used to be Balihoo’s space down in BoDo.

Mitchell + Palmer: The folks at Mitchell + Palmer have moved north just a bit, leaving their space on Hill Road for what we presume to be a larger location off of Bogus Basin Road, and judging by the number of new faces around their shop, the extra space was sorely needed.

c308 Marketing: c308 left the familiar halls of the Hoff Building and moved into a space at 14th & Idaho, across from the WaterCooler.

Stoltz Marketing Group: After more than a decade on Main Street, above two restaurants – first Zutto, now Flatbread Community Oven – Stoltz Marketing Group is moving to the Cornerstone Building at 9th and River. Not one to mess with a trend, they’ll still be above a restaurant. This time, however, it’ll be a few floors up from Cottonwood Grille.

DaviesMoore: The most recent shop (that we know of, at least) to throw their hat into the moving ring, DaviesMoore recently signed a lease for space in the 805 Idaho Building (also known as the Boise National Bank Building), according to the listings in the Idaho Business Review. If I had to venture a guess, I’d suspect they’ll be moving by the end of the summer.

Are there others that we’ve missed?


Glaring oversight on my part — Noot Group recently moved as well – from their space on Broadway to a new location in Bown Crossing. (Thanks for the reminder James).

New Hires at Red Sky Public Relations

At the University of Idaho Anna received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Outdoor Recreation Leadership. At Red Sky she’ll be working with the agency’s regional and national consumer, retail and technology clients.

Ben Rosenthal, Account Coordinator:
Ben is Red Sky’s newest addition, joining the firm in September, 2010. He is a graduate of Boise State University, with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. Most recently, Ben worked as a remote broadcast technician and traffic assistant at Journal Broadcast Group, where he was part of a team responsible for executing advertising events for a wide variety of local businesses.

At Red Sky, Ben will provide tactical support to a broad range of Idaho clients, primarily focused on public involvement/education, economic development, real estate and cause marketing.
