Mr. Jordan holds a Masters of Management Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he concentrated in international management, management of innovation, and operations management. He also holds a Masters of Science in Systems Engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He completed his undergraduate work at Vanderbilt University with double majors in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
Venturi is extremely thankful to have Mr. Jordan leading its team, and can’t wait to see the incredible impact he will make on MIOS as a whole.
