Jeffrey Jordan

Jeffrey Jordan, former senior vice president for international programs at the Catholic Medical Mission Board, has been selected as president and CEO of the Population Reference Bureau effective June 23. Jordan succeeds Wendy Baldwin as PRB’s president; James E. Scott, PRB’s chief financial and operating officer, has been acting president since Baldwin resigned in November 2013.

The Washington, D.C.-based PRB is a private non-profit organization that offers research and academic information on population and related topics. As Jordan was quoted in a release, “For more than 80 years, PRB has been providing accurate, objective demographic data and analysis to inform decisionmakers and implementers, and empower them to create sound policies and programs in population, health, and environment.”

At the Catholic Medical Mission Board, Jordan provided oversight and strategic input to all international programs in HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, neglected and tropical diseases, and gender. He managed the board’s field staff and the medical volunteer program, and oversaw the monitoring and evaluation unit and the grants acquisition department.

His demographic experience is rooted in his work at the Population Resource Center (1990-1994), followed by the Futures Group/Constella Futures (1994-2007). At Futures, he first served as an analyst and program manager before becoming vice president of program development and operations and chief operating officer. He has also served with USAID Zaire.

Jordan holds a master’s degree in public affairs from Princeton University, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
