  • Jordan Thompson

    Sales & Staffing Manager

    "My favorite part about working with Express is being a part of an amazing team who share a passion for community and the people in it. Being in a position where I get to partner with clients in this community to problem-solve, contribute solutions, as well as to provide hope and opportunity to the people of this community is why I love doing what I do."

    Express Hillsboro welcomed Jordan Thompson to the team in January 2021 as our new Business Developer. Jordan has a competitive spirit and holds himself to a very high standard, which translates seamlessly in his roles within our office. He also loves helping others and working closely with the public to provide them with hope and opportunities for growth. Since his first day, Jordan has come into the office motivated and ready to help each associate he meets. Every person Jordan encounters finds themselves in a more positive headspace than they did before, and for that, we are grateful to have someone like Jordan on our team!

    Before Express, he spent most of his career working in fast-paced customer service-centric environments where he had daily interactions with the public, which allowed him to interact with others on a personal level. From there, he established a role where he was able to recruit and build teams within our community that could continue to give back. In that role, Jordan got the chance to mentor young professionals, establish leadership and personal development training, and develop a professional pipeline for franchisees in the Northwest Region for his previous employer.

    Jordan was born and raised in Beaverton, Oregon. As a child, he dreamed of getting into politics, which he is still open to in the future, despite the negative connotation that can come with those positions. Jordan is a huge family man driven by a need to love and provide for his family and those closest to him. Jordan married his best friend, Vendela, in 2018, and together, they have two shepherd mixes-a girl named Bella and a boy named Kylo. During their downtime, they often find themselves out in nature, hiking around the mountains, or surfing the Oregon coast.
