Upon receiving his bachelor’s in Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management and bridging the gap between theory and practice, Jordan quickly climbed the corporate ladder in Compliance, Risk, and Governance, going from Assistant Vice President to Senior Vice President in four years within the financial industry.
