Jean Christensen

VP Major Accounts

Ms. Christensen has been with ABCO since 1990 and as VP of Major Accounts plays a key role in our sales and customer support team. Originally born in Wisconsin – (Go Pack Go!) She is a child of the Midwest (having live in 6 states!) She graduated high school early (overachiever!) and immediately started work at Leslie Company, binder and tab manufacturer, 4 months after turning 17.  While there she worked every facet of production eventually working her way into purchasing, estimating and job scheduling.  In 1990 she relocated to Dallas and began working at ABCO as a co-manager of order entry/costing/billing and as a CSR/Liaison between sales and production.  From there she moved in a sales role and has never looked back! When asked why she does what she does Ms. Christensen says: 

"The relationships I’ve build with my customers have lasted beyond projects and positions/companies/etc and are the reason I like what I do."

Outside of her work at ABCO Ms Christensen is very active in her Oak Cliff neighborhood. She is part of her neighborhood association, an Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce member, and has volunteered for numerous Oak Cliff events including the OOCCL home tour. As if that wasn't enough she is also very active in animal rescue. She has personally rescued countless animals off the streets and helps fundraise for the SPCA, Dallas Animal Shelter, Duck Team 6 and Pit Bull Rescue.  On any given day you might find her riding her bike around Oak Cliff, working in her huge eclectic flower garden, playing with her canine family of four (plus 2 very patient felines!)  Ms. Christensen is very proud of the two wonderful children she has helped raise. One is starting his freshman year at the  Chicago Institute of Art and the other is  a junior in high school.  She owns a cranky 88 year old Tudor home and likes to keep her ear to the ground concerning chef changes, restaurant openings and other happenings in the local Dallas food scene.
