Jordan Parekh

Head of People

Jordan Parekh is the Head of People at Artemis Connection, where she oversees recruitment, staffing,
and development of all team members. Prior to Artemis, Jordan worked at several consulting firms –
including McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, and The Bridgespan Group – in both client-
facing roles and talent management roles. She also has spent time in the nonprofit sector, and holds a
Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School, plus a BS in Commerce from the University of
Virginia.

Jordan joined Artemis because it represents a rare model of making client service “work” for people who
want and need flexibility in their lives. After several international and cross-country moves (and several
children!) of her own, she knows that this flexibility is the only thing that keeps some talented people
working, or at least working happily.

Jordan lives in San Francisco with her husband and three sons, and she spends most of her free time
hiking, reading, and dreaming of a quiet house.
