Joe Taphorn

Account Executive

Hailing originally from Cincinnati Ohio, Joe brings a passion for meaningful work and fostering strong partner relationships. 

Joe finds himself constantly asking lots of questions and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. The questions of “why” and “how” are what drives him as an Account Executive at Up&Up. In his role, Joe is able to ask, divulge, and discover the purpose behind the work, bridging the gap between art and business.

Joe resides in downtown Greenville where he enjoys reading, hiking, traveling up and down the east coast, and watching his beloved Bearcats whenever he gets the chance. Joe has also claimed to have “found his golf swing again”, however there is no evidence to support such a claim.
