Former Morgan Stanley broker Douglas Greenberg and sons continue their preparations for scheduled Mount Kilimanjaro climb in June.
Having traveled across much of the globe in pursuit of his love of skiing, sailing, scuba diving, hiking, wine tasting, and more alike, former Morgan Stanley broker Douglas Greenberg is now set to head to Tanzania to climb the infamous Mount Kilimanjaro. Traveling to the north-easternmost part of the African nation with his two grown-up sons, the trio is set to tackle the continent’s tallest mountain this summer.
A zeal for travel has seen the former Morgan Stanley broker and his family tour extensively across the world, partaking in many of his and the rest of the Greenbergs’ passions in the process. “Keen skiers, we not long ago returned from a wonderful time in British Columbia, Canada,” reveals Greenberg of his recent trip to the Whitewater Ski Resort. A top skiing destination for intermediate and advanced skiers, Whitewater Ski Resort is located in an area also renowned for its sailing, according to experienced traveler Greenberg, who’s also an accomplished boater.
Seeking a new challenge, the well-respected broker and his two grown-up sons are now preparing for their scheduled Mount Kilimanjaro climb in June. At close to 5,900 meters tall, Mount Kilimanjaro’s most impressive volcanic peak soars above Africa’s second-highest mountain, Mount Kenya, by almost 700 meters. “We’re all incredibly excited to travel to Tanzania to hike Kilimanjaro this summer,” reveals Greenberg, “and preparations are now well underway.”
Bordered by Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Burundi, and Zambia, the United Republic of Tanzania is positioned within Africa’s Great Lakes region. “While Mount Kilimanjaro is located on the Earth’s equator, since you’re ascending close to 20,000 feet, it’s immensely cold as you reach the summit,” points out former Morgan Stanley broker Greenberg.
Greenberg and his sons will first travel through grassland and jungle before reaching alpine forests and arctic tundra. “Even as a family of keen hikers and climbers,” he adds, wrapping up, “we’re under no illusion about what’s in store, and we cannot wait for the challenge.”
The family’s trip to Tanzania is scheduled for June 2019.
Born in Texas before relocating to California for high school, Douglas Greenberg is today settled in the attractive and desirable Portland, Oregon suburb of Lake Oswego. A graduate of the prestigious Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania Executive Education Program and a former broker with Morgan Stanley, Greenberg is widely regarded for his problem-solving skills and for specializing in asset allocation and alternative investments.
A fan of live sports including professional baseball and basketball, the father of two is an avid volunteer, supporting numerous regional, national, and international charities. Greenberg is also the proud owner of a curly-coated retriever called Molly.
