Jason Kramer, B.B.A.’11

The Strategist
Strategic Account Manager, James Hardie Building Products

Jason Kramer’s job has moved him from Michigan to Missouri and back again. Kramer’s thirst for sales started at Coca-Cola, where he worked during college. After graduation, he accepted a position with James Hardie Building Products, a global leader in the production of fiber and cement products. Kramer was assigned to a position as an account manager and placed on an accelerated learning team in St. Louis.

But Michigan called him home. Kramer moved back to become regional sales representative for James Hardie, before being promoted again to his current role as strategic account manager, where he has responsibility over distribution partners across five states. Throughout his time with the company, he has grown the James Hardie market share by 20 percent and holds the title of youngest member of the Midwest management and leadership team.
