A nationally sought after writer, speaker and media commentator on securities enforcement, corporate ethics and whistleblower issues, Jordan entered the private sector following a successful career in federal law enforcement. At the SEC, where he played a leadership role in the development of the agency's whistleblower program, Jordan served as an Assistant Director and, previously, as an Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the Division of Enforcement. Throughout his tenure at the SEC, Jordan was assigned to many of its highest-profile matters such as those involving Enron, Fannie Mae, UBS and Citigroup. He successfully investigated, litigated and supervised a wide variety of enforcement matters; cases that resulted in monetary relief for harmed investors in excess of $35 billion.

Prior to joining the Commission, Jordan was a Trial Attorney at the Department of Justice. He began his legal career as a Navy Judge Advocate on active duty and continues to serve as a senior officer in its Reserve Law Program.

A decorated military officer and recipient of numerous awards during his many years at the SEC, Jordan was recently named a Legal Rebel by the American Bar Association Journal.
