TOPEKA – At the request of Governor Sam Brownback, Nick Jordan, Interim Secretary of Commerce, will continue serving in this role until such time as the U.S. Senate votes to confirm the Governor’s position as U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. Jordan had earlier announced his intention to resign his position effective January 5, 2018.

"I have been asked by Governor Brownback to continue serving in my role as Interim Secretary of Commerce,” said Secretary Jordan. “With the amount of economic development projects in the pipeline, I am happy to continue in this role to provide consistent leadership until the U.S. Senate votes on his confirmation."

Secretary Jordan has served as Interim Secretary of Commerce since July 2017, and also serves as the head of the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors. He previously served as the Kansas Secretary of Revenue and had served in the Kansas State Senate as co-chairman of the Commerce Committee and chairman of the Joint Economic Development Committee. Throughout his Senate tenure, he played a significant role in implementing economic growth policies designed to improve entrepreneurship in Kansas. He has been successful in the private sector, and is known for his passion in promoting economic growth in urban, suburban, and rural Kansas.
