DRAKE COOPER KICKS OFF 2014 BY ADDING TALENT TO CREATIVE AND ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENTS
Boise, ID—(January, 13 2014) – To kick off the new-year Drake Cooper welcomes two new full-time employees, Colleen Morgan who’s joining as Sr. Graphic Designer and Susan Becker, joining as Brand Manager. Both of these senior hires immediately help bolster the growth of the agency’s creative and account management offerings.
Small in stature, but big in spirit, Colleen brings over 16 years of design and advertising goodness to Drake Cooper. In that time, she has lived in the agency world as well as both corporate and non-profit sectors while honing her skills in branding, design and creative strategy. For a designer, her right and left-brain are surprisingly balanced.
Integrated campaigns to flyers, trade show booths to bike jerseys, she has designed just about anything you can imagine for the likes of Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, Avaya, POWER Engineers, YMCA, Boise State University and oodles more, earning some nice awards along the way.
Colleen’s hobby is having many hobbies. Travel, soccer, skiing, kayaking, wine or beer tasting, reading or recycling, she is up for just about anything. Colleen is a graduate of Boise State University with B.F.A. degrees in Graphic Design and Illustration.
Susan brings over fifteen years of marketing experience to her role at Drake Cooper, seven of those being with Portland-based Columbia Sportswear. As the promotions operations manager for Columbia she developed sponsorship programs with partners including NBC’s 2002 Winter Olympics, ESPN’s XGames, Sundance Film Festival, and The Discovery Channel. Since moving to Boise in 2008 Susan’s roles have included marketing manager at BOB Trailers, sponsorship manager with The Exergy Tour, and various consulting roles for businesses in the area.
When not working she can be found snowboarding, training for triathlons, suffering through hot yoga, or relaxing fireside at a campsite. At home she and her husband Jamie are constantly entertained and occasionally challenged by their two young children, Eamon and Stella. As a family they are happy to call Boise their home and love to explore Idaho’s beautiful outdoors.
