C.R. Crawford Construction announced Monday that John Teeter has been named as the Company’s new president. According to a press release from C.R. Crawford, the executive leadership change is effective as of Nov. 1, and “is a product of current president, founder, and company namesake Cody Crawford’s decision to ensure the company continues to be best positioned for exponential growth and client service.”
“It’s not the C.R. Crawford way to sit idle. We have a lot of racehorses in this company who want to run and we want to harness that energy, experience, and knowledge to the advantage of our company, employees, and clients,” Crawford said. “After discussion among the partners of C.R. Crawford, we felt it was time to allow others within our group an opportunity to steer this ship. John Teeter has been an extraordinary asset to our company and he has our full confidence. We are proud to have him serve C.R. Crawford in this capacity.”
Teeter is a registered professional engineer and has worked in the construction industry for more than 15 years. In 2017, he joined the team at C.R. Crawford and served as Vice President of Project Management. He has led some of the state’s largest and most recognizable projects.
“I’m grateful for this opportunity,” Teeter said. “Cody founded the company on solid values such as integrity, quality, and dependability, and I’m excited to take on this new role and continue leading with those values in place. We have an extremely talented team at C.R. Crawford – providing opportunities for our people to grow and serving our clients’ unique needs will continue to be our priority.”
Crawford maintains majority ownership in the company and will continue to be actively involved. “I will still be present and extremely active in the daily business,” he said. “As our primary clientele continue to evolve, my focus will remain on strategically growing our business and staying engaged with those clients.”
The company’s two other owners, Jason Keathley and Scott Stokenbury, will continue to provide leadership to pre-construction and business development divisions, respectively.
