Marty was responsible for sales and marketing in several Southeast Asia markets, including Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines, according to his company biography. He joined Intel in 1996 as an engineer.
The climbing group included two guides employed by Alpine Ascents International. The accident is the worst on Mt. Rainier in 23 years, according to the National Park Service.
