  • Jordan Paxton to join the LAN and AFOL Engagement


    Signe Lønholdt

    I’m super happy to share that we have a new engagement manager for LAN and even more thrilled to have this particular person on board! @Jordan Paxton is currently Consumer Service Specialist in Consumer Shopper Engagement in Enfield, USA and will be relocating to Billund, Denmark with his family. When he’ll be relocating to Denmark is still uncertain due to the COVID-19 situation and I will share his onboarding date with you all as soon as I have a concrete date. This means that for now Jordan is still only able to spend a few hours per day on LAN.

    Some of you already know Jordan from when he was maternity cover for Sara Skahill or maybe you’ve gotten to know him recently while he has been helping us out on LAN these past months. 

    I asked Jordan for a writeup I could share with you and here's what he wrote:

    It is extremely exciting to be joining the AFOL Engagement team and to help support the relationship between the LEGO Group and fan communities. Over the past 18 months, I have had the opportunity to meet some fans both online and at events and I have learned so much about the different facets of the fandom. This time has shown me the true breadth of the passion and has helped make me a strong advocate for the growing AFOL community.

    As a fan myself, I can look back and see many important LEGO milestones in my life. As a child I enjoyed the classics of space and castle. Personally, I was always a fan of the wolf pack sets. Like many children of the 80s and 90s, I fell away from the brick and it would take a nudge to get be back to building.  In 2003, my mother helped me get out of my dark ages by sending me a LEGO set to build during finals week at college. LEGO set 4581 The Origins will always remain one of my favorite sets because it reintroduced me to a passion I had let slip away. After this set, and quite a few more, working for the LEGO Group became my next goal. Eventually I would get the opportunity to work at the LEGO Brand store in Orlando and eventually move up to Connecticut to work in Consumer Services. Now to be continuing this journey in Denmark is unbelievable.

    Over the next few months and years, I look forward to meeting you at events and working with you on the LAN. If you see me, please share with me your journey to becoming an AFOL as well as your passion with the brick. There are so many different ways that fans express their passion with the brick and each one teaches me more about the greater fan community.

    I look forward to seeing you around and don’t be surprised if you see me building with DUPLO® bricks just as often as LEGO bricks!

    Please help me give Jordan a warm welcome and feel free to introduce yourself in the thread below if you haven’t already 😊.

    This is great news!  I'm hoping we can engage you soon about LUG status!  We've got an anxious group of AFOL's here in Greenville, SC that have been working hard to represent LEGO in our community and are READY for LUG Status!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOoooooo
