Huntsville’s enVention welcomes new executive advisor
HUNTSVILLE — EnVention recently welcomed John Jordan to their team as a key executive advisor.
Jordan will help guide the company through its next expansion phase by drawing upon his 35-plus years of leadership experience in fast-growing companies and a technical career focused largely on weapons system support and analysis.
Jordan holds a Master of Management Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Systems Engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He completed his undergraduate work at Vanderbilt University with double majors in electrical engineering and computer science.

Prior to that, he served as the CAS Group President and led KBRwyle’s business in Huntsville with more than 1,000 employees supporting a broad range of federal, commercial and international customers. He is well known in the defense community as a long time CAS Inc. executive who participated in several corporate acquisitions. Jordan has also served on the board of directors for the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce.
