Robert Jordan Joins Team Tripepi Smith
Tripepi Smith welcomed Robert Jordan to the team as its newest part-time Junior Business Analyst on February 17, 2021. Robert is currently a first-year graduate student at Pepperdine University working towards a Masters of Public Policy expecting to graduate in Spring 2022.
“I am excited to join a team of dedicated professionals that help better connect local governments to their constituents,” said Robert. “Having the opportunity to experience a different part of the local government community is exciting and I am grateful for the growth opportunities that Tripepi Smith has to offer.”
Prior to joining Tripepi Smith, Robert worked as a Graduate Assistant at Davenport Institute at Pepperdine University. He played an instrumental role in partner outreach and building partner relationships to develop a nationwide social media campaign. Robert also assisted in brand optimization and content alignment with marketing materials, particularly Davenport’s motto of “Policy Begins with People.” During his undergraduate years, he held communications intern positions at the City of Riverside Mayor’s office and Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District.
With the City of Riverside, Robert helped to increase the Mayor’s social media presence through photography and by developing an educational social media video series of historical facts about the Riverside community. He also assisted staff in policy analysis and community outreach, and staffed various events with dignitaries ranging from the city level to the international level.
“We are excited to welcome Robert to the Tripepi Smith family as we are expanding faster than ever to meet the communications demand the pandemic has placed on local governments,” said Ryder Todd Smith, Tripepi Smith President. “With his experience building partner relationships and in city government, we are looking forward to applying the talents Robert brings to the table to our growing list of clients.”
He is a graduate of California Baptist University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism & New Media and Public Relations, with a concentration in Photojournalism and Social Media Strategy, as well as minors in Political Science and Global Justice. Robert joins fellow “Lancer” Alexandra Applegate at the company.
