Interesting Fact
Growing up, Spencer’s dad (Parker Teel, founder and CEO of TEEL) told him the construction industry was tough. While a career in the family company would always be available to Spencer, Parker suggested he go to school and get an education in an unrelated field. Spencer always enjoyed the challenges construction brought, but also weighed his father’s advice heavily while attending CNU and declaring his major. Spencer was half way through his sophomore year when his ECON 101 professor made a big impression on him and had him convinced that being an economist for the government was the way to go; so Spencer decided to major in business with a concentration in economics. When Spencer told his fraternity brothers of his decision, they reminded him that he had a well-established, respected construction company in front of him and that he would be a fool if he didn’t seize that opportunity. Thank God for his friends, because going into the family business was one of the best choices he’s made in his life.

“The gratification a successful project brings after all the blood, sweat and tears you share with your project team is indescribable. Being able to proudly put your name on a project and being able to say, ‘I helped build that’ is a huge motivator.”
