ORLANDO, FL, USA, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Edgewood Children’s Ranch board of directors has announced the selection of Central Florida business owner Bruce Jordan as its new executive director.
“We’re very pleased that Bruce is willing and able to commit his experience as a business owner to his new role,” says Edgewood Children’s Ranch Chairman of the Board Thomas Tukdarian. “He has a long history with the Ranch and truly has a passion for our mission.”
“This is a bittersweet moment for me,” says Jordan. “But I’m looking forward to applying all the knowledge and experience that Kymera has afforded me over the years to help bring growth and additional funding to such a deserving program — and such deserving children and families.”
Before accepting his new position, Jordan was a managing partner at Kymera, a successful marketing and digital advertising agency, and had owned Inspiration Media, a thriving digital media company. Through his transition, Jordan will serve as a consultant advisor at Kymera.
As a child, Jordan himself was an at-risk youth who benefitted from the Edgewood Children’s Ranch program, which to this day continues to focus on the development of personal accountability, dependability, discipline and the Christian faith. Jordan’s cottage parent was Stuart Eldridge, a 37-year employee of Edgewood Children’s Ranch and its most recent executive director, who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year.
“I had a special bond with the Ranch and with Stuart,” Jordan says. "He and I often talked about how I might step into his shoes one day. Regretfully, that day came far too soon; however, I’m honored to be able to give back to the organization that inspired me to change the direction of my life for the better.”
