Jordan has an extensive background in hospitality spanning over 15 years, which started in his father’s restaurant working 5 days a week from the age of 11. In fact, Jordan is quite the entrepreneur! At just 6 years old he was traveling round shows and festivals in the UK buying locally made walnut whips and selling them….for a pretty nifty profit! Having worked in various bars and nightclubs and as Senior Hospitality and Suites Supervisor at Manchester Arena, Jordan is definitely a people person and always aims to please.
Jordan is a grafter, that’s evident, but he is also immensely driven and does not stop until the client’s visions have been turned into a reality. Working with people across all industries and with all sorts of dreams for their events is what Jordan truly loves to do and that most certainly reflects in the quality of his work.
“I would much rather work 16 hours a day giving 100% than 8 hours a day giving half that!”
An enthusiastic event professional, always keen to build relationships in the industry, network and expand on my current knowledge. A keen eye for new and funky venues in the UK. I love something different!
