Jerry Smith Reaches Milestone
Jerry Smith reached his 40 year milestone with BakerTriangle. Jerry began his work with BT the same year Rocky won the Oscar for best picture! Baker Drywall hired Jerry as a helper in 1977 installing acoustical ceilings, eighteen months later Jerry was promoted to foreman. By 1983 Jerry moved into the office as an estimator trainee and a few years later became a project manager. Opportunities opened up for a branch office in Virginia, and Jerry was selected to lead that office. Eventually, the Texas economy made it possible for a new office to open in Austin and Jerry found a new home in central Texas in 1995. Twenty-two years later the Austin office has grown and become the go-to contractor for specialty commercial projects. BT Chairman had this to say about Jerry, “as a President and Partner, his leadership of Austin has consistently produced good profits while becoming a major force in the Austin construction market. A father, grandfather and friend to many who lovingly call him ‘Uncle Jerry’, Jerry is a caring leader. He speaks his mind and generally tells it like it is, he has gained respect within the company and the industry as a leader in the Wall and Ceiling industry.”
Steve Baker and COO Debbie Brocker award Jerry his 40 Year Recognition.
