Ray Jordan

Chief Corporate Affairs Officer 



Ray Jordan joined Moderna to lead corporate relations in June 2020, in the thick of the pandemic and the biotech company’s race to produce a safe, effective vaccine. From then on, Jordan supported the company’s production and rollout of its coronavirus vaccine, which, in December last year, was approved by the US government for emergency use. With oversight of Moderna’s strategic communications and corporate affairs functions, Jordan continues to guide the company through the multiple complexities of Covid, including communicating the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.

Over his 30-plus year career, Jordan has held senior roles with leading companies in the biotech sector. Before Moderna, Jordan spent seven years leading corporate affairs for Amgen, and nine years at Johnson & Johnson where he led corporate communications and public affairs for more than 250 operating companies. During 17 years at Pfizer, he held a range of positions including VP of communications and information.
