Jillian Welch is the new General Manager of the Jensen Precast Sacramento Branch in California. She brings a wealth of experience to the role, which is her third internal promotion since joining Jensen Precast in 2012.
Welch most recently served the company as Regional Sales Manager in Northern California, where she has been instrumental in growing product sales, leading the ERP system integration, and driving stronger customer service and employee skills initiatives. As a Sales Manager for Sewer & Storm Drain Manholes, she grew the product line across Northern California. Welch joined Jensen Precast as an Outside Sales Representative from Teichert Precast, where she helped increase sales and assisted during the acquisition of the company by Jensen Precast.
She earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Drexel University in Sacramento and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Welch is APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management and completed the Oliver Wight Integrated Supply Chain Management Course.
Welch grew up in the industry and worked at her father’s Right Away Redy Mix business starting at age 16. She tackled everything from batching trucks to fielding telephone calls. “My dad and a friend of his began with one truck and grew the business into four plants,” Welch says. “During my summer and winter breaks in college I came home and worked for them in Oakland, Martinez, Pleasanton, and Union City, California.”
As General Manager of the Sacramento Branch, Welch’s responsibilities include overseeing Jensen Precast sales operations for Northern California.
The role change opens up the position of Regional Sales Manager for Northern California. In addition, the General Manager position at the Jensen Precast Lockeford Branch remains open. Contact Jensen Precast HR for more information or go to www.jensenprecast.com/jobs.
