About Ted Turner
With over 40 years of leadership experience in the Engineering, Construction, and Services industries, Ted has successfully managed large, complex projects in 31 states and 17 countries, and 4 continents. His professional credentials include General Engineering licenses in four states, contractor licenses in 12 states, and certifications from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, The U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Command, The Board of Certified Safety Professionals, The American welding society, IMD Lausanne Switzerland, and other entities. He is a co-author of the AACE Decision and Risk Management Professional Study Guide. His accomplishments have been featured in Popular Science, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Austin Construction News, and other publications.
As a business executive, Ted has directed business portfolios exceeding $3.5 Billion to profitable, safe, and timely completion. An example of his entrepreneurial acumen is the recent development of a small specialty contractor from $24 Million to $140 Million in yearly revenue while increasing EBITA from 6.7% to 16.2%
However, in Ted’s view, those accomplishments pale in comparison to the successes in working with executives and others from around the world, bridging differences in culture, education, habit, language, religion, customs, experience, and attitudes to build cohesive teams of people that respect each other’s talents, show patience for their weaknesses, and embrace their mutual success.
Helping individuals and groups unlock their potential and realize successes they never thought possible have, by far, been the most rewarding experiences in a long and varied career.
