Jeffers now the top man with Aitkin Growth Inc.
18 Jan 2021
Mark Jeffers is originally from the East Coast – Easton, Pennsylvania, to be exact.
But while a student at Slippery Rock University, Jeffers made a friend from northeast Minnesota – and eventually decided to move here.
“I moved here two weeks before the Halloween snowstorm of ‘91,” explained Jeffers with a laugh.
Since then, he’s been an employee with Viking Coca Cola – until now. Recently, Jeffers took over the executive director position at Aitkin Growth Inc. – the agency in the county working for economic development.
