Kleinfelder Announces New CEO-elect
Kleinfelder, a professional services firm based in San Diego, Calif., has announced that William C. (Bill) Siegel, P.E, is the new chief executive officer-elect.
He will take over for Chief Executive Officer Gerry Salontai, P.E., in April 2009. Currently, Siegel is senior vice president for corporate development and sits on the company's board of directors.
Siegel came to the company in 1985 as an engineer in the Las Vegas office. He went on to serve a variety of leadership roles, and his initiatives and vision helped lead an acquisitive growth strategy that turned Kleinfelder into a coast-to-coast company. He has occupied eight different positions at the firm in a broad range of operational and strategic roles.
"I am deeply honored that the board has selected me as the next CEO to lead Kleinfelder," Siegel said. "This is a great organization that has a history of growth and innovation derived from outstanding people and long-term client relationships. I am very excited about the opportunities ahead of the firm and our prospects for future success."
