New hire at Stoltz Marketing Group

It’s been a few weeks since I first saw this, but hey — life’s weird these days, you know.

Stoltz Marketing Group recently added Nicole Coleman to their team as a Digital Marketing Manager, according to a recent post on Instagram and elsewhere.

Nicole was previously a Campaign Strategy Manager at Bodybuilding.com, and a Project Manager at Drake Cooper before that. She’s also been a freelance graphic designer, and graduated from Boise State University with a B.A. in Graphic Design.

People on the move

Quinn Husney recently joined Drake Cooper as an Account Coordinator after spending the summer in their Backstage Pass internship program.

Also at Drake Cooper, Olivia Gonzalez joined their team as an Account Supervisor, following her move to Boise from New York City, where she spent time at Huge and TBWA\Chiat\Day NY.

Brandon Stoker joined Stoltz Marketing Group as an Art Director, following a two-year stint with Oliver Russell.

More recently at Stoltz, Tracy Hitchcock was added as Director of Business Development, following her time as CEO of Create Common Good, and with the J.R. Simplot Company prior to that.

In September, DaviesMoore added Adam Rosenlund to their team as their new Associate Creative Director.

Erick Gutierrez joined SOVRN as a Project Manager earlier this month, accordingly to an update on LinkedIn, after a year as an Account Coordinator with Stoltz Marketing Group.
