Industry Consultant

Robert D. Jordan CVE provides consulting services to teams, venues, property owners, and developers. He is an established voice in the “Smart Stadium” movement by developing solutions that integrate all the electronic systems in modern venues into an integrated operating and content distribution platform that lowers cap ex, improves the fan experience, and maximizes revenue.

Jordan most recently was with Van Wagner’s Team and Venue Services Group, specializing in technology infrastructure at sports facilities and mixed-use districts. Projects included consulting on SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta for Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves, plus Little Caesars Arena and the District Detroit – the ballpark and arena both opened in 2017. Van Wagner acquired Jordan’s firm, Venue Research and Design, in 2012.

Jordan worked with MLB Advanced Media to update MLB ballparks with a standard wireless platform across the league. His role extended to consulting for MLB on its activation of instant replay in baseball, as well as league-wide installations of Statcast and iBeacon. Jordan’s additional milestone projects included consulting on college facilities such as the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium renovation and Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome. Prior, Jordan was the vice president of design and construction for MetLife Stadium, the $1.65 billion stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., that opened in 2010 for the NFL’s New York Jets and New York Giants. He was also part of the development team at American Airlines Center in Dallas, which opened in 2001 for the NHL’s Stars and NBA’s Mavericks.
