Emerson Teer

Enterprise Operations Leader at DPR, Emerson Teer joined the WBC board in 2013 for several reasons. “It’s non-political with a strong focus of craftsmanship and networking. The DC-based industry group aligned best with my goals and mission.”

His favorite WBC event? Cactus Cantina. “It’s a great time at the end of the summer to catch up with everyone over some margaritas!” He encourages new members to get out of their comfort zone and join in the networking events. “At first, it is uncomfortable, but it is amazing how many people you will connect with.”

Emerson enjoys spending time with his wife of 15 years, two boys and Tito, a rescue lab/Australian shepherd mix.
