CAREER ANTHEM “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen

LINER NOTES After graduating from BYU in 2011 with a degree in international relations and dominating in the retail and software worlds, Jordan Wade ran off and joined the circus(trix) — and now he helps run a multimillion-dollar company that has multiple brands, offices in Los Angeles and Provo and more than 320 locations across the globe.


FAVORITE LYRIC “Anything from ‘Word Crimes’ by Weird Al.”

CAREER HIGH NOTE “Our last company conference was the culmination of several years of hard work and crazy growth. At our first conference in 2015, a few dozen of us gathered together with a white board in a room to figure out how we thought a trampoline park should run. Our last conference had 500+ franchise partners, corporate employees and store leaders attending, all from multiple countries and almost every state in the U.S., collaborating on how we can transform a multi-billion dollar trampoline park industry. The fact that I’m saying ‘multi-billion, trampoline park,’ and ‘industry’ in the same sentence amazes me!”

MUSIC TO MY EARS “The most successful people are those on the frontier of something. Put yourself in situations where you can be on the frontier.”

MY FORTE “An ability to be objective and data-driven has helped me make good decisions in impactful situations.”

DREAM RECORD “To never miss the right opportunity.”
