Reflecting on his career, Mr. Jordan commented: “I am proud to call myself an investment banker to the owners and management teams of middle-market businesses and the financial entities that transact with them. The greatest rewards from my work during the last twenty years are the contacts, relationships, knowledge and experience gained from our clients and industry partners. Moreover, while this award has my name on it, in reality it should instead, bear the names of the many outstanding personnel that have been associated with our firm. It is to them that I owe my gratitude for their consistent commitment to the creation of successful outcomes for our clients.”
