Altitude Opens First Satellite Office, Adds Rebecca Sipes to Team as Director of Client Engagement

New location enables Altitude to attract clientele in the life sciences, software and technology industries in Research Triangle Park, N.C.

Altitude Marketing is pleased to announce the opening of its first regional office, strategically located in the Research Triangle Park (RTP) area of Chapel Hill, N.C. The office is slated to open this month with the newest addition to Team Altitude, Rebecca Sipes.

Sipes has joined Altitude as Director of Client Engagement, responsible for the southeast region of North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. In her new role, Sipes will develop and manage client accounts, overseeing all aspects of integrated marketing campaigns while working closely with her colleagues in Altitude’s headquarters in the Lehigh Valley, Pa.

“More than 80% of Altitude’s business comes from technology companies,” said Andrew Stanten, president. “We ‘get’ tech – especially in the life sciences space. And, given the success we’ve had in Research Triangle Park to date, our expansion in this market is a logical step. By pairing this location with Rebecca – who is well connected and widely respected within the life sciences community –we are perfectly positioned for success. Sipes, a former employee of an alumni client, worked with us for nearly five years and intimately understands Altitude’s high standards of excellence, ethical practices and unparalleled customer centricity.”

Prior to joining Altitude, Sipes was Associate Director of Business Development and Sales Support for Copernicus Group IRB (Copernicus), a former Altitude client. Copernicus, located in Research Triangle Park, is a leading independent institutional review board that hired Altitude to help raise the organization’s profile in the industry.

Sipes worked as Altitude’s main point of contact at Copernicus and, over a four-year period, the brand awareness, messaging and profile of the organization was raised exponentially.

As a result, Copernicus was acquired last winter.

It’s an Altitude success story in which Sipes, who spent 14 years at Copernicus, played a key role.
