Keynote Speaker

Mary Teichert

Mary Teichert is the President of Teichert Inc., a 5th-generation family business founded in 1887, and the qualifier on California State Contractor’s License #8. Teichert’s operating divisions have excavated, graded, paved, and supplied materials to thousands of miles of California’s roads and streets, tens of thousands of subdivision lots, and countless acres of site projects as well as highways, airports, bridges, dams, levees, and other essential infrastructure elements.

Mary began her time at Teichert as a Quality Assurance technician, and her career at the company has included plant management, material sales, estimating, project management, and division leadership roles prior to her becoming Chief Operating Officer in 2013 and President in 2020. In 2021 Mary facilitated a series of workshops sponsored by the Small Business Administration, CSLB, BIA, and the California Capital Women’s Business Center on helping women and minorities become licensed contractors. Prior to Teichert, Mary was director of strategy for a division of Apple, and a consultant for Bain & Company in San Francisco.

Mary is currently Vice Chair of the California State License Board, Vice President of The Beavers (a heavy engineering construction association), a board member of AGC, a Senior Fellow with the American Leadership Forum, and a board member of the California Building Industry Association (CBIA). She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a Bachelor’s degree from Harvard College. When not at work, Mary likes to golf, travel, and spend time watching her three teenaged boys play all the sports there are.
