Robert Jordan is the Chairman, President & CEO of RLJ Enterprises, INC. DBA Genesis VII, Inc. an Engineering, Construction & Logistics Services Company in Titusville. He’s chairman of the Parrish Medical Center Board of Directors and Viera Charter School and a Councilman for the City of Titusville. He has also freely given his time to Brevard Work Force, Titusville YMCA, United Way of Brevard, Circles of Care, the Economic Development Council, and many others.
Prior to acquiring Genesis VII, Mr. Jordan served as Chairman of Brevard County School Board and was committed to his Engineering work on the Space Shuttle program at Kennedy Space Center for more than 32 years. In 2011, Mr. Jordan lost re-election to the Brevard County School Board and the next day, lost his job at KSC when the shuttle program ended. However, because he loves challenges and finds blessings in unusual places, he turned it into an opportunity to own his own business, he purchased Genesis VII and became his own boss. The blessing that followed was the freedom and ability to spend precious time with his mother before she passed. Now as Chairman, President & CEO of RLJ Enterprises, Mr. Jordan continues to have the freedom and opportunity to pursue community and charitable endeavors as he sees fit.
“My father told me a long time ago: If you see something out there you want to do, you find the time to do it,” he said.
In recognition of the time, money and effort Jordan has put into making Brevard County a better place to live, he was a finalist for Citizen of the Year in FLORIDA TODAY’s 2015 Volunteer Recognition Awards. In nominating Mr. Jordan for the award, Dr. Pedro Carmona, a Titusville pathologist, said his friend is always in “mentor mode.” He has “been instrumental in mentoring at-risk students within the community over the years, and he joined forces with a local church initiative to help at-risk youth.
Mr. Jordan cares about children and their future, this is why he has accepted the Special 007 Assignment from the Friends of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Brevard (CACB) to help raise funds and awareness for the CACB’s program and services for abused and neglected children and give them the opportunity for healing and hope.
