Scott Teerlinck, president and CEO of East Dubuque, Illinois-based Crescent Electric Supply has been named a “CEO to Watch” by Family Business Magazine.

Teerlinck is the second non-family-member CEO of Crescent, which was founded more than 100 years ago. He joined the company in May 2020.

“Scott has brought a fresh perspective and a sense of urgency, which has been well received by the board and our associates,” said Dave Keltner, Crescent’s chairman of the board. “He has developed a really strong senior management team, which, along with his industry experience, strategic mindset and transparency about what needs to be done, has given us great confidence that Crescent can produce top-tier results as the company begins its second century of operation.”

Family business owners, advisers and colleagues nominated chief executives for recognition as Family Business CEOs to Watch. Non-family CEOs were eligible. Honorees were selected by Family Business Magazine’s editorial team based on the nominees’ “exceptional leadership, and balancing of family and business interests,” according to Crescent.

The magazine chose 28 CEOs for this honor.
