Kleinfelder's leadership has built an environment to support and motivate our employee-owners and serve our long-term client relationships.
“The culture of the company matches me well, with an open, honest approach to building a stable business and a sincere effort to improve and provide a long-term enjoyable 'home' for everyone who works here.”
"Every day at Kleinfelder, I find opportunities to challenge myself and push for excellence. I love the fact that I can directly contribute to our client success and company value. And perhaps even greater, I am surrounded by people who feel the same way."
“The intellectual capital, or knowledge, of our people at Kleinfelder is our greatest asset. Leveraging the knowledge that exists throughout our company is key to maintaining our competitive position and creating shareholder value in a constantly changing environment. To that end, I’m privileged to have an opportunity to contribute my knowledge with that of my colleagues.”
"As the need for infrastructure solutions continues to grow, Kleinfelder has major opportunities for growth. In addition to connecting with our clients, I enjoy crafting strategy that provides avenues for the company to grow in different ways. I believe that by executing market-based plans with leading indicators, we will best leverage our business development and marketing resources. Our brand is a great foundation on which to build future growth and success."
"One aspect of working at Kleinfelder, that has been particularly rewarding, is the opportunity to help shape our culture to ensure we empower our teams with innovative tools and systems to deliver the right solutions for our clients. It’s not just about innovation, or client service, or being in the right place—it’s all of those things—together with the best people, empowered to do the right thing, every time."
“The world is a challenging place where the logistical, social and political complexities have daily impacts on the 6 billion inhabitants. Critical factors are the challenges we face to have the right infrastructure for the future and how we can effectively maintain that infrastructure. At Kleinfelder we are structured to succeed in solving those critical infrastructure challenges by aligning talented people with the complex demands and goals that impact our clients.”
"In my role at Kleinfelder I have the opportunity to meet and work with employees at all levels and in all jobs. I can tell you from those interactions, our employees enjoy the people they work with and the variety of projects they work on. Kleinfelder is a place where employees have opportunities to work in different fields, learn new skills, go to new locations and expand or even change careers. Engineers have moved into marketing or communications roles and administrative assistants have been able to move into project management or regional manager roles. Kleinfelder truly is a company that offers our employees many options for career growth."
“I have been surprised to find a genuine interest in risk management, while working at Kleinfelder. Employee ownership certainly contributes to an understanding that the company must carefully manage its risks for Kleinfelder to enhance project success.”
"There is no better testament to Kleinfelder’s 2020 Strategic Direction than our growth into Canada. Our relentless focus on solving our client’s needs and problems, combined with Kleinfelder’s flexibility and agility, is bringing new opportunities to our employees and company. The deliberate decisions we are making, mobilizing our best talent on select client opportunities and challenges, is benefiting our clients and accelerating our competitive advantage. This is a very exciting time to be part of Kleinfelder Canada, with lots of opportunity for those who want to be part of building our future."
"Kleinfelder Australia, as a reflection of the bigger Kleinfelder Group, has a talented group of dynamic environmental consultants dedicated to safely delivering the right solutions for our clients."
“Our world is facing huge water issues, and I couldn’t be happier then helping to resolve them with my Kleinfelder colleagues. Our expertise covers just about every aspect of water supply and wastewater collection and treatment–dams and levees, groundwater, intakes, pipelines, pump stations, treatment, storm water, recycled water,… - and it’s refreshing to be able to offer a full spectrum of services to our clients and help them from beginning to end of their projects.”
"I can promise everybody, particularly our clients, that they will not be disappointed with the quality of the people that we have at Kleinfelder. Our transparency and ability to come together on critical issues makes Kleinfelder extremely special. In my 19 years here, the company has continuously changed for the better, providing new challenges and career opportunities for my coworkers and me, which has been refreshing and rewarding."
"It is amazing to me the quality of our associates, project experience, and resource depth that can be mobilized to satisfy the client’s needs in all markets—and particularly for Transportation. The rewards for me come from connecting the dots to provide value for our clients and profits for our shareholders."
