Made in Mississippi – Ted Duckworth
Ted J. Duckworth is Co-Manager of TDLDC, and President and CEO of Duckworth Realty, Inc. Ted has been the architect of the company’s recent growth into development projects and has provided a vision for the company’s downtown revitalization efforts in Jackson, Mississippi. This vision carries over into the overall company philosophy of making a difference in the community where we live and work. His $16 million renovation of the mixed-use Electric 308 Building in 2005 sparked an interest in downtown development and created an atmosphere of energy in the downtown market.

The transactions have allowed Duckworth Realty to expand its operations across the region, with projects located in Jackson, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, Mobile, Pensacola, Gulf Breeze and Atlanta.
