AmeriTitle promotes Hajek to assistant vice president, area manager

Richard Hajek Jr.
AmeriTitle has promoted Richard Hajek Jr. to assistant vice president and area manager of its east Idaho operations. Hajek will maintain his position as general manager of AmeriTitle’s Idaho Falls, Rigby, and Rexburg branches and will now oversee operations in the Pocatello and Ketchum-Sun Valley branches.

Hajek has 12 years of industry experience, beginning his title and escrow career with AmeriTitle in Salem, Ore., in 2002. In 2007, he moved to Idaho Falls to assume the general manager position. He serves on the board of the East-Central Idaho Development Co. and previously served on the Idaho Falls Country Club Board of Directors. He is a member of many local organizations, including the Exchange Club of East Idaho, the East Idaho Home Builders Association, the Upper Valley Association of Realtors, the Greater Idaho Falls Association of Realtors, and local chambers of commerce.

Hajek grew up in Medford, Ore., and lived in the Salem/Portland area for 5 years before moving to Idaho Falls. When not working, his hobbies include playing percussion, golfing, biking, traveling, and most outdoor activities. On a personal note, Rich was the drummer in my band Happyville from mid-2011 to late 2013, and  I can say I have never met a nicer person who had to look at my backside as long as he did.
