In the interest of full disclosure

Some of you know me. Many of you do not.

For those that don't, here's a brief introduction. My name is Brian Harrison.

When I began publishing this blog, I was little more than an interested observer of the agency business here in Idaho. I had worked for Stoltz Marketing Group many years ago, and as such was familiar with many of the players around town. I've had a day job that has allowed me the chance to keep up on the ins and outs of this business, and natural curiosity about how the whole Web 2.0 thing will affect the work that local agencies are doing.

Well, that's all about to change.

As of Monday morning I'll no longer be merely an interested observer. I'll have skin in the game, so to speak.

I've accepted a position with Closed Loop Marketing & Advertising.

Is that going to change what I do on this site? Probably.

Obviously, I won't be writing about what's happening inside the agency -- that would be nothing short of career suicide. I will most likely keep up on who is coming and going, job openings, and other assorted news. Also, if I see a particularly good, or bad, campaign, I'm still going to call it as I see it.

Even in a "smaller" business community such as Boise, I think we still need to be able to pat each other on the back once in a while, respectfully call bullshit when appropriate, and raise the level of discussion, and consequently the quality of the work.

With that being said, have a good weekend everybody.

Brian,
congrats on the new position. I'm sure you'll be very busy at the new job, but maybe now you can meet me at Java once in a while (since it's across the street).

Howdy Brian,
We're a production company in Denver. We want an insider's view on who the best Ad agencies are in Boise so we can come meet with them. We're looking for people who really care about the creative. Can you divulge?
Thanks
