CATMEDIA has recently announced a new member of its growing team with the hiring of Jordan M. Johnson-Gordon as its Director of Operations. 


With more than 10 years of proven experience in healthcare regulation, compliance methodology, survey and data analysis, and policy development, Johnson’s skillset will surely add to CATMEDIA’s comprehensive offerings. He will play a key role in improving and developing company processes, overseeing several major client relationships, and managing and developing staff. 


The addition of Jordan to our leadership team is one that I’m thrilled to announce,” said Catherine Downey, CATMEDIA founder and CEO. “In his short time here, he has already proven invaluable by bolstering some of our largest client projects, as well as by enhancing some of our internal processes. 


Operational Expert Brings Proven Healthcare and Research Experience


After attaining a degree in Psychology, with minors in Biology and Neuroscience, from Morehouse College, Johnson went on to earn both an MHA and MBA from Georgia State University. While in school, Johnson conducted Tier 1 research at Morehouse College and was a Neuroscience Institute Summer Research Fellow. Additionally, he was an Emory University PREP Fellow. 


The first seven years of Johnson’s professional experience was completed at Emory University, where he worked at both the Yerkes National Primate Research Center and the Winship Cancer Institute.
