Jody Blencowe

idea ace

With an inclination towards learning and problem solving, as well as an ability to roll up his sleeves and get things done, our “idea ace” is a champion at taking projects from the ideation process all the way to completion. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in Economics and Environmental Science, Jody worked as a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers for five years before earning his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

Prior to finding his way to Think Up, Jody spent nearly 14 years at Marriott International supporting, leading, and consulting on projects in HR, Finance, IT, and Operations. He was also a key member of the Courtyard brand management team, helping to drive the overall strategy, priorities, and goals of the brand. Now, as a Senior Consultant and our Blue Team Lead, Jody is excited to immerse himself in the unbridled optimism and energy of Think Up, while tackling problems and developing creative solutions. As the parent of boy-girl twins, his passion lies in being the best father he can be, teaching his children to embrace life, respect others, and have fun!

beside the point…
  • A music lover at heart, he attended the first official Dave Matthews Band concert during his first week at UVA.
  • Sharks, manatees, rays, and sea turtles, oh my! Jody has gone swimming with all these sea creatures (but not all at the same time).
  • He loves just about any kind of spicy food or hot sauce – jalapenos, habaneros, Thai chili peppers, etc. In addition to growing hot peppers, he has been known to stockpile large quantities of Tabasco…just in case there ever happens to be a run on hot sauce.
