PARK CITY, Utah — From the Carolinas to Bahrain, UAE, and the military to movies, Revice Jordan has already had quite a life. Jordan has lived in Park City for ten years and owned and operated his business POSH Management Group for five years.
Jordan grew up in North Carolina in a “very small, very country” town on the edge of the South Carolina border called Dothan. His parents were young, not together, and he recalls his mom always working. That left grandma in charge. However, “she was just grandma, right? We were always outside; we raised ourselves as kids,” he said.
His mom married his stepdad, and the family moved to Knightsville, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston. He traveled back and forth between the two during his younger years.
As a teenager, Jordan suffered a severe burning accident, leaving his body 85% burned. Doctors told his mother he wouldn’t survive, and if he did, he’d never use his left leg to its full potential. After three months in multiple hospitals, Jordan recovered.
Eventually, Jordan found a path with the military that literally took him all over the world.
“Once I got to South Carolina, I realized that in order to do something with my life, I needed to get away. And that was my thought process in joining the military.”
Stationed in Virginia, New Jersey, and Bahrain, to name a few, Jordan was an anti-terrorism force protection agent, participated in undercover shore patrol, and special ops with Military Seacraft Command to escort supplies between Spain and Greece. Oh, and on the side, while stationed in New Jersey, Jordan modeled with an agency in Manhattan and appeared in television and movies, exposing him to the entertainment industry.
Injury and traumatic experiences guided Jordan into life as a veteran. Eventually, he moved to Ogden, where his young son, Taye-Carter, lived with his mother. Jordan was homeless for one week, then was placed in a veterans shelter in Ogden, where he found the footing to get a job and stability in life.
Cut to Park City, where Jordan has lived for ten years now after friends recommended he check out Sundance due to his interest and experience in the entertainment industry.
“I knew this was the place I needed to be, to be as close to happiness as possible. I felt like Ogden wasn’t really the place for me, like Salt Lake wasn’t the place for me, and then Park City had people from all different walks of life, and I knew I wanted to be a part of the community and become a part of its history,” he said.
At Hotel Park City, Ruth’s Chris, and Newpark Hotel, he gained the insight and experience that cemented him in the hospitality industry leading him to open POSH, which in its early days was mainly property management. He said he was called the Michael Jordan of Hotel Park City because he was doing everything from night auditor to busser or host.
POSH Management Group focuses on highly customized group and individual experiences and events, concierge services, and consulting for hospitality teams. Although he still manages some homes, the business has expanded to incorporate his passions. He’s currently working as a consultant for Anthony Zamora, Utah Jazz’s Director of Performance Nutrition, as he prepares for a new season.
Jordan also currently serves on the board of directors for the Park City Chamber and Visitors Bureau.
“To be sitting here ten years later being elected to sit on the Chamber board of directors, this is the ultimate blessing for me. It might seem like a small accomplishment, but to a guy who broke his family generational curse, that moves mountains for us and those who’ve never thought they could do it.”
