About the Speaker
Howard Tellepsen is Chairman and CEO of Tellepsen, a fourth generation, family owned and operated business, providing commercial, institutional and industrial construction services in Houston since 1909. The company today employs over 2,000 people focused solely on the greater Houston market, and the company is perennially ranked among the top construction companies in the city.
Tellepsen has made a multi-generational dedication to projects of significance and to giving back to the community. Known as “builders & believers,” Tellepsen is drawn to opportunities to be a part of something that is “bigger than themselves.” Tellepsen has impacted the lives of five generations of Houstonians, building places where they work, play, live, learn, and worship. It is a passion that extends far beyond construction to a commitment to community that has been imbued in family members for five generations. The culture extends to every Tellepsen employee as they shape Houston’s built environment.
Howard is a member of the board of directors of CHI St. Luke’s Health System, St. Luke’s Foundation (Chairman), Edith and Daniel Ripley Foundation (President), YMCA of Greater Houston (past Chairman), Houston Associated General Contractors (past Chairman), Sam Houston Area Council, Boy Scouts of America (past Chairman), and the Petroleum Club of Houston. Tellepsen is a Distinguished Eagle Scout and a Senior Fellow in the American Leadership Forum.
Howard received his Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech, has been elected to the Academy of Distinguished Engineering Alumni, received the 2012 Alumni Distinguished Service Award, and awarded the 2015 Dean Griffin Community Service Award. Howard and his wife of 47 years, Carolyn, have four married sons (all employed at Tellepsen) and ten grandchildren. They have been members of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church since its inception.
