TEG Architects, an architecture, visualization and interior design firm headquartered in Jeffersonville, Ind., announced the new ownership and management structure of the firm, effective July 1, 2019. Thresa Estopinal, Kevin Russell, Ernie Dreher, John Sprouls, and Jared Burt will now serve as managing partners. The new – yet familiar – leadership team will ensure the firm’s well-established brand remains.
This change was necessary after Wayne Estopinal lost his life in a plane crash in November 2018. This untimely event sparked the need for restructuring in order to maintain the firm’s commitment to providing clients with quality, service and creativity – core values that have been instilled into the firm since its inception in 1989.
Together, the new leadership team holds nearly 100 years of experience with TEG, which will provide a smooth transition of operations and continuity of services to the firm’s clients. Thresa, who co-founded the architecture firm with Wayne 30 years ago, will manage human resources and finances. Kevin with 29 years, Ernie with 21 years, John with 15 years, and Jared with 4 years of experience with TEG will lead the design and construction administration services.
