Over his 21-year career, Tripp Muldrow transformed over 400 communities in 27 states and 3 countries. He has mobilized Gulf Coast, South Carolina, and Vermont communities to regenerate after natural and human induced adversity. After Katrina, he designed plans for the Gulf Coast that garnered $1 billion in reinvestment, while after Hurricane Irene, his Vermont plans yielded $12 million in grants. Tripp has also transformed South Carolina communities. Travelers Rest—now a tourist gateway with over 50 new business and 62% increases in property values—exemplifies his approach: learn from the place, collaborate with residents, and plan for the future.
