Smith Celebrates 45 Years with BakerTriangle

Jerry Smith, president of the Austin division of BakerTriangle in Texas, celebrated 45 years with the company last month. He has the second longest tenure in BakerTriangle history, second only to the company’s chairman of the board, Steve Baker.


As president of Baker Drywall Austin, Smith works with the project managers reviewing pricing and other day-to-day operations within the project management group. He also works with the superintendents helping with field issues. He started his career at Baker as a ceiling installer in 1977 then progressed his way up to a field foreman, running some of the bigger jobs that were under contract at the time. He moved into the office in 1984 learning estimating and project management skills.


Smith was 2018–2019 president of the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry.
