Meet Jacob Kluger, Architectural Sales Representative

Jacob KlugerJacob Kluger is based in San Anto­nio and rep­re­sents Bau­tex Sys­tems in the South Texas mar­ket. He joins Bau­tex with more than 15 years of sales expe­ri­ence in the con­struc­tion indus­try, most recent­ly with Supadoors, Inc. Kluger is eager to uti­lize his strate­gic sales expe­ri­ence to sup­port Bau­tex.

What are you most excited about in your role?

Bau­tex is poised to make a huge impact in cre­at­ing high per­for­mance build­ings across the coun­try. It is no secret that archi­tects, engi­neers, and devel­op­ers con­tin­ue to search for cost effec­tive ways to max­i­mize ener­gy effi­cien­cy, sound rat­ings, fire rat­ings, sus­tain­abil­i­ty and longevi­ty. Bau­tex meets those goals and then some with a sim­ple-to-con­struct, con­tin­u­ous­ly insu­lat­ed con­crete block. The con­cept real­ly takes a half-cen­tu­ry proven con­cept to the next lev­el.

What is unique about your market?

South Texas is one of the fastest grow­ing regions in the coun­try for so many rea­sons. Expect to see a lot more bumper stick­ers pro­claim­ing I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could!”

What makes you a great fit for Bautex?

Work­ing with lead­ing archi­tec­ture firms across the nation has cer­tain­ly allowed me to see upcom­ing nation­al trends and per­spec­tives. The Bau­tex team has clear­ly antic­i­pat­ed many of these trends and designed an easy-to-use build­ing block sys­tem ide­al for com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial appli­ca­tions. I look for­ward to play­ing a small part in the suc­cess of this inno­v­a­tive com­pa­ny.

How are you involved in community and professional organizations?

I cur­rent­ly chair JNET­SA — a young pro­fes­sion­al net­work­ing group in San Anto­nio. I also cur­rent­ly serve on the board of direc­tors for the Jew­ish Fed­er­a­tion of San Anto­nio. My pre­vi­ous involve­ments have been with the UTSA Col­lege of Busi­ness, Tech­Bloc, and I have been pub­lished in Door and Hard­ware, a nation­al mag­a­zine for the build­ing indus­try, on STC (Sound Trans­mis­sion Class) rat­ings, trends in hos­pi­tal­i­ty and senior/​assisted liv­ing projects, and LEED require­ments.
