Our Co-Founders grew up less than 2 miles apart and met in third grade at Morningside Elementary School (Both in front row, far right of 5th grade photo above). What started as fun, building tree houses together in their backyards and later driving ice cream trucks around the city for work in the summer of ’72, eventually turned into a partnership when the pair founded Tecton, Inc. in August of 1979.
ARTHUR COHEN CO-FOUNDER
Arthur oversees the day-to-day operations of Tecton. He draws from his 40 years of experience in the construction industry and real estate business in Atlanta. Arthur is also the co-founder and real estate broker of Cross-Town Realty, LLC. He is an Atlanta native (Grady HS grad) and has not only seen first-hand but, been part of, the massive increase in development the city has experienced over the years.
Arthur served in the US Coast Guard before earning a business degree from the University of Georgia. However, his true interest and long-time study is in Mysticism. In fact, he loves talking about it, so just ask him. Arthur begins his day with an early morning swim, but on weekends, you can usually find him spending time at the lake with his wife, animals and three adult children. However in crunch time, he trusts not only his instincts, but sometimes looks to the I-Ching for guidance.
ALAN GLICKSON CO-FOUNDER
Alan began his career over 40+ years ago, renovating homes before diving head first into new home construction and commercial building. Tecton, Inc. projects most notably helmed by Alan include The Willoughby, Parkview Station, Sager Lofts, and Ten Forty Commercial Lofts. As a licensed contractor, he champions Tecton, Inc.’s commitment to build quality projects with a meticulous attention to detail and deft handling of subcontractors.
A Boston native, Alan currently resides in Atlanta with his girlfriend and their animals. He enjoys riding his Harleys, taking his dog, Willow on long walks through the city and flying. That’s right, Alan is also a licensed pilot!
