  The Teer Family has been associated with Construction and Development since the turn of the Century.  In 1906, Nello L. Teer, then an 18 year old brick yard workman, suffered the loss of his hand in an unfortunate on-site accident.  But young Nello Teer was a man of vision and strong work ethic who turned an obstacle into an opportunity.  He started over.  Working with rented mules and equipment, he began clearing and grading land.

Nello L. Teer worked hard during the economic boom of the early twentieth century, and over the years built a thriving operation which expanded across the country and the world.

Robert D. Teer, Jr. is the grandson of Nello L. Teer, raised in the family tradition of perseverance, insight and excellence.  Like his grandfather, he has worked diligently to acquire an intricate understanding of the construction and development industries while pursuing a formal education in a variety of areas.

Mr. Teer was a member of the United States Army Reserve for twenty seven years retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Health Services Command, Ft. Sam Houston, Texas.   Mr. Teer earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from East Carolina University.   He went on to complete a post graduate program in Engineering Economy at the University of Tennessee and a course in Professional Management at The Young Executives Institute at The University of North Carolina School of Business Administration.  He also completed the Army Command and General Staff College.

This distinguished career exemplifies the Teer family tradition.  The continuation of these values through the thoughtful leadership of Robert D. Teer, Jr. ensures a promising future for Teer Associates and its clients.
