Douglas Teiger


Douglas Teiger is a business consultant, coach, and mentor. With more than 38 years in practice, Douglas has a wide range of architecture experience. After working for other firms upon graduation, he opened his own firm in 1989. In 1999, Douglas formed a partnership, Abramson Teiger Architects (ATA), lasting 20 years and growing from a six-person firm into a 32-person firm. As managing partner, Douglas’ ability to effectively streamline the operations allowed for more time to be spent on design and project research—a major factor in the consistent high level of design associated with ATA. Douglas’ mission is to mentor young firms in order to accelerate their growth. Using his expertise, he acts as a sounding board for young principals as well as a guide through all aspects of a practice, including strategic planning, operations, HR, marketing, and business development. His life coaching skills facilitate a work/life balance as an important part of a successful practice. Douglas has a B.A. in Architecture from Cornell University (with honors) and an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
