AB&I Foundry, a manufacturer of cast iron soil pipe and fittings, announced that Grant Hajek joined the AB&I sales team as a regional sales manager covering the Northern California territory.

Hajek will be responsible for reaching out to existing customers and developing new partners within the territory. His appointment supports the company’s strategic direction, strengthening customer relationships as well as expanding our sales support coverage.  

“I have held a range of sales management positions, including a sales position with Mueller Industries, regional sales rep for Jomar Group, and then I eventually made my way back to Mueller Streamline in the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Hajek. 

Hajek grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, and attended Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. He received a football scholarship and was the starting center for four years. While attending the university, he studied business administration with a focus on marketing and management. Hajek and his wife Jennifer met in San Francisco and have been married for two years. They just recently welcomed their first child, Henry. 

“I’m looking forward to having Grant on AB&I’s sales team," said Shannon Hooper, national sales manager at AB&I Foundtry. "His experience in relationship building and business will help to further increase AB&I’s brand and will continue to uphold our favorable and long-standing reputation in the Northern California market.”
