Jessica Anderson, P.E., LEED AP BD+C, and Gabriela Kleiman, CCM, CCP, LEED AP BD+C, have been promoted to associate principal and federal project principal, respectively, for their continued dedication to growing HDR’s global federal architecture practice and consistency in delivering design excellence to their clients.
With more than 16 years of industry experience, Anderson has a proven ability to manage complex federal projects.
