Teague and the entire team at Croy subscribe to the company philosophy best outlined by founder, Jim Croy, Sr. “Croy is a company driven by community. From planning runways, highways, or greenways to designing, surveying, or managing construction projects – we’ve got your back. It’s why our clients are our top priority – because communities aren’t shaped just by projects, but by people. It’s why we’re committed to being approachable, accessible, and responsive. It’s why as your needs change, challenges arise, or timelines get shortened, we’re your first phone call. And, it’s why we give back through volunteering, mentoring, and supporting non-profits. Because the places where you live, work, and play – we call them home, too. We believe in engineering the extra mile. It’s what we do.”
Teague has worked his entire professional career in Cobb County and has served as Public Works Director for the City of Marietta, Development Manager for Traton Homes, and as a consultant to all the local governments in Cobb. In these roles, he has had the privilege of working as design engineer and project manager for numerous public and private projects.
Cobb County and the surrounding area have benefitted from Teague’s leadership and commitment to volunteer service. Teague is Chair-Elect for ACEC Georgia and Board Treasurer for liveSAFE Resources, which operates the only domestic violence and sexual assault shelter in Cobb County. Previously, he has served as a board member of a local water and sewerage authority and is a former board member of the Coosawattee Regional Water and Sewerage Authority.
