CEO and Co-Founder
In 2011, Jordan founded Stay Alfred after identifying an opportunity in alternative accommodations when home sharing began to take off. In eight short years, he has grown Stay Alfred into the nation’s largest travel apartment operator with more than 2,800 units in 33 U.S. cities.
Stay Alfred allows guests to live like locals in upscale, urban travel apartments with more space and better amenities than cramped cookie-cutter hotel rooms. Stay Alfred received $47M in series B venture capital funding in October 2018 to continue national expansion and has made the “Fastest Growing 500 Companies” by Inc. Magazine for four consecutive years. In June, Allen received the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 Award in the Consumer Service category in the Pacific Northwest. As the world’s most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs, Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes individuals who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world
Prior to founding Stay Alfred, Jordan was an airborne ranger and captain in the United States Army serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his free time, Jordan enjoys playing racquetball with his wife and teaching his young kids, Sofie, Stella and Brody, to be “army tough.”
