Boston, Massachusetts – The Kleinfelder Group, Inc., a leading engineering, construction management, design, and environmental professional services firm, announced today that Brian Kelly has been named Northeast District Manager for Gas Transmission Systems, Inc. (GTS) – an infrastructure solution provider for gas and electric utilities that Kleinfelder acquired in October 2020.  As the Northeast District Manager, Kelly will build and oversee GTS operations to achieve growth in the Northeast utilities market.
