The second new hire or note is, well…me.
No, this is not some belated April Fool’s Day joke.
I’ve joined Stoltz Marketing Group as Interactive Services Manager. I’ll be working with a variety of key accounts, and will be involved with a number of client and agency initiatives in the online space. Long-time readers of the Idaho Ad Agencies blog are familiar with my past experience and history, so I’ll spare you the details here.
But fear not, dear readers — the Idaho Ad Agencies blog will continue much as it has in the past. Like the industry, it has evolved over time, and will continue to do so into the future.
