Jerry Smith Reaches Milestone

Jerry Smith reached his 40 year milestone with BakerTriangle. Jerry began his work with BT the┬ásame 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.
