When TIP Strategies’ senior partner, Jeff Marcell, isn’t leading high-profile strategic planning efforts for communities around the country, he’s climbing mountains. In August of this year, Jeff summited Mont Blanc in the Alps. At 15,780 feet it’s the highest peak in Western Europe. Jeff is an avid mountain climber with successful summits of over a dozen peaks including Mt Rainier WA, the Grand Teton WY, and Denali AK.
After his epic climb, Jeff sent the TIP team this shot. Proving that economic development isn’t far from his mind, even amidst such staggering beauty, Jeff, frozen but triumphant, marked the summit with a TIP Strategies flag.
