Elizabeth Jordan Wilhelm — a former U.S. Army explosive ordnance disposal officer — has joined Janus Global Operations as director of conventional weapons destruction and unexploded ordnance clearance.
JGO said Wednesday Wilhelm will work out of the demining and UXO clearance company’s Reston, Virginia office.
“(Jordan’s) tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan gave her in-the-field experience that will be invaluable to JGO’s commercial and government clients, ” said JGO President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Weakley.
Wilhelm formerly held a business operations and development role at Tradecraft — a sales and business development apprenticeship program.
She also served as an associate intern at Buffaloe Global Development where she created a business plan for the launch of a social impact project in Sierra Leone.
While in the Army, Wilhelm managed explosive emergency response for military and civil authorities across the East Coast and was deployed three times to Iraq and Afghanistan.
