With a strong entrepreneurial spirit and clear vision for success, Ilka Jordan is driven by her core values of honesty, integrity, and authenticity. She is the founder and CEO at Jordan Alliance Group Inc (JAG), a minority-owned and women-led management consulting firm at the forefront of the Fashion Retail Industry’s supply chain circularity.
Over the past twenty years, Ilka built an exceptional record of accomplishments leading major corporate sustainability initiatives that significantly reduced waste and improved supply chain transparency, accountability, and governance. Ilka championed supply chain circularity and resiliency through innovative strategies, technology, enterprise change capabilities, agile processes, and sustainability practices measured by environmental benefits and profitable business growth.
Today more than ever, it is important to acknowledge the growth and influence that the Fashion Retail Industry has in society and, for that matter, the power to cultivate a positive change for the future. Over the years there have been efforts from many fashion companies trying to adapt to a more sustainable and responsible operating model, yet the transition and challenges they face have affected their success.

She has committed herself and her high-performance, multi-discipline team to help retailers confront their challenges and increase their awareness of being socially responsible in fashion.
As a trusted strategic partner, Ilka leads companies through organizational change and the adoption of innovative business models that transforms supply chain operations and company cultures that embrace the potential of building networks of partners and suppliers that fully capitalizes on circularity. She fosters leadership skills through coaching, counseling, and mentoring.
