Getting to Know LSWG – Ted Gregory

Next in our series to better acquaint you with our fellow LSWG co-workers and friends…

Meet Edmond B. (“Ted”) Gregory, III, CPA, ASA

Ted originally joined LSWG in 1978 and rose from supervisor to managing partner before he changed direction and worked in the private sector for 15 years.  He returned to LSWG in 2015 and is a principal in our Frederick office heading up LSWG’s client accounting services team and business valuation practice.

Ted and his wife, Helen, recently returned from a two-week vacation in the South of France and shared some photos of his trip…

  • Airbnb – Did you know Airbnb is worldwide? Ted and Helen rented la petite maison (a little house) in Arles through Airbnb’s online marketplace. The house sits just 300 feet from a Roman colosseum built in 90 AD.
  • A UNESCO World Heritage Site – While in France, Ted and Helen stopped by the Pont du Gard aqueduct, which was built by the Romans in the first century AD to carry water from a spring in Uzès to the Roman colony of Nîmes.

Back in the good ‘ole U.S.of A., Ted is especially fond of…

  • Music.  His faves run the gamut (southern rock, big band, classical), and include the Allman Brothers, Moody Blues, Glen Miller and Handel (George Frideric) and Vivaldi (Antonio).
  • Hiking.  If you’re ever out on the Appalachian Trail, don’t be surprised if you cross paths with Ted.  To date, he has hiked 760 miles of the 2,200-mile long trail (but he has no plans to finish it!).  One of his most memorable life experiences was his trek on the Hundred-Mile Wilderness section in Maine.  The warning, “Don’t start if you can’t finish,” didn’t deter him either (it just fueled his fire).

    The Pont du Gard is the most intact aqueduct from Roman Times.

    Only serious hikers need enter. The warning signs at both the north and south entrances to the Hundred-Mile Wilderness don’t mince words.
