As 2019 came to a close we got word that veteran account manager Josh Mercaldo made the move to Rizen Creative.
Josh has spent the better part of the past two decades in the agency world, first with Mediaphex, which later merged to become Wirestone (now part of Accenture Interactive), then Publicis, followed by a decade-plus with Drake Cooper, and most recently CLM.
He is a graduate of Idaho State University, and lifelong Toronto Blue Jays fan.
From our friends at the Boise Advertising Federation:
Ever wonder what the inside of DaviesMoore, Mitchell + Palmer, Foerstel, CLM or Wirestone look like? Here’s your chance to see all agencies and ride school buses again. Join us for Tour de Smashed III held on May 28th from 5pm – 11pm. Tickets are $25/person.
We’ve extended ticket sales! This is a Pre-paid event only and ticket sales will be closing on May 20th. There are 100 seats for the bus and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Wheels up on May 28th at 5pm in the parking lot of 9th and River Street (near Cottonwood Grille). Look for the yellow buses.
Drinks and snacks will be included on the buses, and please use good judgement to participate responsibly.
Update: Per the BAF’s Facebook page, this event is sold out.
The Boise Advertising Federation is hosting the second annual Tour de Smashed on Thursday, March 14th from 5:30 – 9:00. As with last year’s event, the Tour will make stops at a variety of different shops.
This year’s list includes:
The Tour begins on the 4th floor of 913 W. River St at Stoltz Marketing Group, and ends in the same building, on the second floor at Wirestone. Ample parking is available.
Cost is $15 and includes drinks (read: beer) on the bus. Additional details are below.
[wire] stone has a number of job openings in their Boise office, including:
More information about each position and how to apply is available via the links above, and on [wire] stone’s Careers page on their website. Word is that new openings will soon be posted there as well, so we’d encourage anyone interested to check in there from time to time.
SOVRN Creative continues to grow, most recently adding Chris Beaudoin to their staff.
Prior to joining SOVRN, Chris was most recently a creative at [wire] stone, where he was responsible for animation and video production. Chris is a graduate of Boise State University with a BFA in Design.
