Chris Jordan

Chris JordanBranch Manager, Chicago, Illinois

Chris Jordan, Branch Manager in Chicago, has 10 years of experience in the technology staffing industry. He began his career working for a large international, global staffing firm in which he started off as a Account Executive. Throughout his career, he has won numerous company awards by taking pride in building strong relationships and understanding his client’s point-of-view. His greatest joy comes from growing new markets and loves the challenge of introducing the LRS story to Chicago. Chris has groomed and trained over a dozen Account Managers and Recruiters during his tenure. He is actively involved with IC STARS and SIM Chicago.

As an avid runner and golfer, it only makes sense that his bucket list consists of playing Augusta National, running the Boston Marathon, and traveling to Europe. He is also a guitar junkie (often playing at open mic nights) and enjoys hanging out with his family including his twin boys, Colton and Lucas, and wife, Maria.

Chris says his favorite part about IT Staffing is "every win helps a person advance their career and helps a customer build their technology platform."
