Leaving the competitive sports world and jumping into the construction industry was a massive change for Britt Tegeler, Owner, and CEO of Britt Tegeler Construction & Supply in Baltimore, MD. Having no knowledge of construction, Britt began working at her uncle’s company, Grasmick lumber, where she soon fell in love with the industry and the many opportunities it offered. A new-found passion for construction pushed Britt to create her own company. The many connections and relationships she developed from working at her uncles’ company have crafted the successful business owner she is now. Britt prides herself on having a thriving female-owned company in a male-dominated industry that is devoted to customer service and satisfaction.
