About Brian Jordan:

Brian Jordan is a man of many talents. Sports enthusiasts are well aware of his athletic skills, as he has been an All-Star player with the Atlanta Braves and an All-Pro selection with the Atlanta Falcons. Jordan garnered acclaim as a three-sport (football, baseball, basketball) high school star at Milford Mill Academy (Baltimore). He continued to blossom as an athlete at The University of Richmond, where he excelled in both football and baseball. Jordan not only prospered on the field, but in the classroom as well, earning his B.A. degree in Sociology.

Currently, this Atlanta Braves player is a principal partner with real estate developer Stephen Macauley. Together they are creating Le Jardin (French for “The Garden”), which has been heralded by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as the city’s first billion-dollar development. Prior to this project, Jordan's real estate company, BOJ, LLC, created Century Lofts, one of the first luxury loft communities in the Peachtree Bottom area of Southwest Atlanta. His hands-on approach in business is a reflection of his lead-by-example attitude on the playing field.

This attitude began to develop early in Jordan. In 1998, he founded The Brian Jordan Foundation, which believes that in every child there is the potential for excellence. The vision of the non- profit organization is to provide practical information, tools and a nurturing environment to children, youth and their families.
