May 3, 2022
Welcome to our Meet the Team blog series! In this recurring series, we’ll introduce you to members of the Focus FS team, with each person answering a series of insightful and inspiring questions. Today we’re talking to Jordan Hopkins, Director of Product Management.
Question: Tell us a little about yourself, your role, and the path to your current area.
Answer: I grew up in Twillingate, NL, but have spent the last 18 years in St. John’s. I have a Bachelor of Business Administration. I am a huge Boston Bruins fan.
I have been with Focus FS since March 2013 and am the Director of Product Management. The easiest way to describe what I do is that I am the link between our sales team and the software development team. I started out in an implementation and support role, deploying and supporting RFID and other software solutions. I managed some small software development projects and helped design the first iteration of what would become our Incident and Event Management software. I took the lead on the redesign of our software, and from there transitioned into managing the development.

What has been your favourite project that you’ve been a part of at Focus FS?
I was a part of many exciting projects over the years, but our current application is easily my favourite project. The idea that it is a continuously growing and improving product is exciting.

- Lord of the Rings Trilogy,
- Billy Madison,

My favourite hobbies are watching hockey, playing softball, weightlifting, and playing Call of Duty with friends.
