Bob Jensen wanted to teach, and Dave Jensen thought he’d be an engineer. It sort of worked out that way. Not officially, but Bob does teach, and Dave uses those engineering skills in their roles at Jensen’s Pools and More.
The brothers have worked together for more years than they haven’t. Even as boys, and young men, the pair were either working side jobs together, running a business part-time out of Bob’s garage, or were both employed at Watson’s Pools. They like working together. They know and trust each other and have learned to lean on one another to take advantage of each other’s strengths.
Bob’s degree in business from Indiana University and Dave’s penchant for the technical details of installations were right in line with their personal interests and cemented their roles in the business. Bob manages much of the administrative side of the business, spending most of his time at the store in Camby where he plans with and educates customers. Dave, on the other hand, prefers to be out of doors and spends most of his time overseeing and managing pool installations and services out in field to high standards just like an engineer.
Having roughly designed roles aside, both Bob and Dave share the same personal and professional values. Jensen’s Pools and More is a family business, and everyone works together to get everything done. Both brothers are customer-centered and devote time and effort talking to owners and other businesses to develop relationships. Not only are people and relationships important to them personally, their practice had a tremendous impact on their business.
They initially came to Morgan County in 1988. That decision was made because they saw the potential for growth in the market. With their expertise and experience in pool installations, they managed to sell 30 pools that first year. Now they average about 150 pools per year.Read the Full May 2020 Edition Here
