Meet the team: Jordan
With ECHO International taking off, we are extremely excited to welcome Jordan, as our newest member of the ECHO team. Joining the team as Partnerships Manager, Jordan will be responsible for developing partnerships with global brands to create sponsorship and brand activation opportunities for our clients.
Tell us a little bit about your role…
"My role at ECHO see’s me networking and working alongside brands, events and sporting franchises, developing strong and successful partnerships that work for everyone involved."
How are you finding working as part of The Creative Group so far?
"Engaging and insightful! I’m taking in new ideas and learning new skills within the company on a daily basis. Working with such an experienced office, it’s great to be able to continue to develop through their extensive knowledge and background within the industry."
What’s your background?
"I’ve been involved in a variety of areas, from a touring musician to a football coach to an ice cream man – I’ve got a few different things under my belt!"
Tell us something random about you…
"I was flown out to America to play with my band at the ‘Girl Scouts of America’ end of year show at Legoland Florida… (It’s a long story)"
Who are your biggest influences?
"I feel I naturally look towards people who enjoy themselves and get on with their life, no matter how bad their situation may seem. I look towards Bradley Lowery, a young Sunderland fan with terminal cancer who has a smile on his face permanently. People like Bradley are a constant reminder to myself daily to be thankful for what I have and where I am."
What’s your favourite quote or mantra?
"I don’t really have one specifically; but I’m a big advocate for being yourself and standing up for what you believe in. Using your voice and not conforming with a group or mass because it’s the easy thing to do - be you!"
