TEEL Construction Appoints Leslie Philpot as 1st Director of Community Position

TEEL Construction, Inc. has named Leslie Philpot its Director of Community – TEEL’s 1st Director of Community in the company’s 37-year history. In her new role, Leslie will serve on the company’s leadership team and is charged with prioritizing TEEL’s commitment to the communities the company builds – both externally and within TEEL. Leslie will lead team recruitment, onboarding and talent development, company philanthropic giving, Volunteer Time Off (VTO) events, and overall teambuilding.

Leslie joined TEEL 8 years ago to the day – May 31, 2016 – as Assistant Project Manager. She earned her promotion to Project Manager in the spring of 2018, a position she held for the next 5-1/2 years. During her tenure in project management, Leslie consistently demonstrated strong client satisfaction skills with nearly 100 projects successfully completed; many for repeat clients. Through her embodiment of TEEL’s Core Principles, Leslie was selected to serve as TEEL’s first Recruiting and Talent Development Manager in 2023, a role she successfully developed before this well-deserved promotion to Director of Community.

TEEL’s President & CEO, Spencer Teel, said in a statement, “Leslie’s dedication to our people and our clients has been apparent since first joining TEEL 8 years ago. I’ve had the privilege of witnessing Leslie’s personal and professional growth into a leader within our company. Leslie’s new role has been made possible by our hard-working team and incredible clients – without them, this new position wouldn’t have been realized. I’m excited to collaborate with Leslie to further promote TEEL’s Built to Serve purpose; by giving back to those who have contributed so much to TEEL’s success. I look forward to wowing our people, clients and communities we build with Leslie and our dynamic team in the years ahead.”
