Jordans Headshot

Hello and welcome to NaviStone’s Casual Corner, where we take you behind the scenes by chatting with our very own team members. Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Jordan Ford, our amazing Campaign Manager. Jordan’s role is a nice mix of creative and technical work, including production design and ethical data management. Born and raised in Maryland, he moved to Cincinnati last year to join the team.

How’d you hear about NaviStone / what made you decide to apply?

I found NaviStone through my fellowship program Venture for America. What interested me about them was their seamless use of new technology for direct marketing which is often seen as old school.

What’s your favorite part of your workday and why?

I would say my favorite part would be working on creative, because I always enjoy using my knowledge in adobe creative cloud to solve issues and save time.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I would probably say an Astronaut or some type of politician.

If you could give your 18-year old self some advice, what would it be?

Take advantage of study abroad and live in Copenhagen for a semester in College.

Let’s talk about your favorite things:

  • Music: I enjoy a variety of music ranging from Hip-Hop to Bachata. I often listen to more emerging artists on SoundCloud rather than the mainstream top 50 hits.
  • Movie: I often watch international films from France, Spain, and Germany.
  • Food: My favorite food is probably salads from Chopt or Bacon Egg and Cheese sandwich.
  • Drink: My go to drinks are La Croix, Kombucha, and Ginger Ale.
  • Hobby: I would just say “side projects.” I usually have too many that take up my whole weekend.

What’s your latest project?

I’m helping a friend supply and sell furniture for his landscape company, and I’m working on app in a hackathon with Venture for America.

What’s your favorite NaviStone core value and why?

If it doesn’t exist, invent it. I’m really into innovation coupled with research and development. An organization like NaviStone took something traditional and re-invented it and I see that type of vision as something that is always needed in business and life.

In your current role, which brand (or organization) would you be absolutely stoked to work with & why?

I would probably say Asos, I like fashion and the style that they have, so it would be really full circle to see that.

Therapy Session

Join Our Marketing Therapy Thursday:

Curing the Covid Hangover

This season typically represents a time of year where we as marketers are attending industry events and conferences, learning of new marketing opportunities, sharing ideas and brainstorming with peers. In the absence of those events, NaviStone would like to help!

Please join us on October 22nd for our next Marketing Therapy Thursday where we will be discussing, “Curing the Covid Hangover”.

This is a forum where marketers can come together to…

  • Share the challenges and opportunities in today’s marketing and business landscape
  • Learn from other marketers on how to navigate some of the biggest issues of 2020
  • All of this, in a confidential, no-sell environment

As noted by past attendees:

"I really enjoyed it. It was relaxed and productive."

“I found it enjoyable and it was great to hear what the other participants were doing.”
