Jordan Czar is an individual characterized by excellence. From serving as FMA’s president to mentoring individual members, he has led with an intentionality that has catalyzed our organization’s recent growth.
Raised in Mountain Brooke, AL, Jordan has always enjoyed a good challenge. He discovered his interest in physics and mathematics during high school which led him to pursue a major in mechanical engineering at Auburn. Although he has excelled in his engineering curriculum, his participation in Tracy’s class initially piqued his interest in finance. Seeking a competitive and challenging career field, he decided to pursue investment banking following a presentation from Goldman Sachs recruiters at Auburn. Upon deciding on this career path, he spent countless hours networking and preparing for interviews which eventually led to his summer internship, and now full-time position, with Moelis & Co. in New York City.
When asked about his favorite FMA memories, he quoted many. However, he specifically enjoyed his trips to New York with FMA members due to the team bonding opportunities that both trips provided. When Jordan isn’t mentoring other students, or polishing his (already perfected) DCF skills in 128, he can be found participating in a variety of adventurous activities. He is a Half-Ironman finisher and avid runner while also finding time to mountain bike and read extensively. Jordan also enjoys the excitement of travel and, following graduation, will embark on a month-long tour of Eastern Europe before moving to New York to start his work as an analyst at Moelis & Co.
When reflecting upon his favorite Auburn memories, he cited his positions as FIJI president and FMA president as his two favorite leadership involvements. Both positions challenged him in new ways and taught him how to manage a team effectively. In offering advice to younger students, he recommended that they… “Be proactive. You can do whatever you want if you choose to work hard.”
Jordan has guided FMA to new levels of success this year through his hard work and dedication. He has demonstrated the power that perseverance and creativity can have upon an organization’s growth. Although we will all miss our Czar this next year, we are excited to watch him excel at his position in New York and look forward to having him back on The Plains as an alumni member!
