Jason O'Krent has joined O’Krent’s Abbey Flooring Center as a sales associate.

"We are so proud that Jason, the fifth generation in our family business, is joining the team," said Sam O’Krent, president of the company. "As a sales associate Jason will learn the business from the showroom floor up. His initial responsibilities will include customer assistance in product selection, measuring and guidance through the sales and installation process. Additionally he will begin his thorough immersion into all facets of the company."

Jason brings an impressive sales history having previously worked for Energy Advisor in Austin increasing its sales revenue 209% after two years; 335% after four years; 629% after seven years and 686% after eight years. While in college Jason interned for the company during summer breaks from 2002 through 2005, assisting with data development for the company's inventory software and also supporting various divisions within the company as needed. 

"In 1915 my great, great grandfather opened a business loaded with hope and a simple philosophy: give customers quality products at a fair price and take care of them like a friend," said Jason. "Now 101 years later, my personal goal is to continue that same philosophy and take care of customers, employees and our community for generations to come."
