New Architectural Sales Reps Reinforce Bautex Team

The build­ing land­scape across Texas is rapid­ly chang­ing, with mar­kets demand­ing more effi­cient, high per­form­ing con­struc­tion prod­ucts. To meet these needs, Bau­tex is grow­ing its sales team with expe­ri­enced lead­ers who under­stand their unique mar­kets, the com­pa­nies and peo­ple with­in them, and how Bau­tex can ulti­mate­ly sim­pli­fy the build­ing process.

Gretchen Kli­afas and Amy Salmeron now lead the East Texas region, includ­ing Hous­ton. Jacob Kluger man­ages South Texas accounts.

We’ve got a well-round­ed, ener­getic team poised to lis­ten and learn about their mar­kets’ needs and help walk cus­tomers through the deci­sion-mak­ing process,” said Chris Noone, Bau­tex Vice Pres­i­dent of Sales and Busi­ness Devel­op­ment. Our sales team not only has exten­sive indus­try knowl­edge, but pas­sion and dri­ve to help improve how build­ings are con­struct­ed in Texas.”

Each Texas mar­ket is unique, but the sales team lead­ers share enthu­si­asm about the ben­e­fits the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem can bring to cities across the state.

East Texas/Houston: Gretchen Kliafas
Kli­afas notes the Hous­ton area’s sus­cep­ti­bil­i­ty to hur­ri­canes, and the impor­tance of Bau­tex Block wind­storm rat­ings.

It’s a game chang­er for Hous­ton. I’m excit­ed that our prod­uct can help improve build­ing per­for­mance across many areas – life safe­ty, ener­gy effi­cien­cy and dura­bil­i­ty — while being a fair­ly sim­ple prod­uct to design and con­struct,” said Kli­afas.

The sheer size of the East Texas mar­ket, near­ly 630 square miles, marks oppor­tu­ni­ty to edu­cate a wide array of design­ers and builders look­ing for sim­pler build­ing enve­lope solu­tions both inside the city and out­ly­ing areas.

The sparse zon­ing codes inside Hous­ton city lim­its means a need for qui­eter, more ener­gy effi­cient build­ings, and Bau­tex Block offers a sim­pli­fied solu­tion for this issue,” said Kli­afas.

South Texas: Jacob Kluger
Kluger is based in San Anto­nio and leads South Texas sales for Bau­tex. He is excit­ed about the poten­tial for Bau­tex in such a fast-grow­ing region of the coun­try.

It is no secret that archi­tects, engi­neers, and devel­op­ers con­tin­ue to search for cost effec­tive ways to max­i­mize ener­gy effi­cien­cy, sound and fire rat­ings, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, and longevi­ty,” Kluger said. Bau­tex meets those goals and then some with an easy-to-con­struct con­tin­u­ous­ly insu­lat­ed con­crete block. The con­cept real­ly takes a half-cen­tu­ry proven con­cept to the next lev­el.”
