Celebration Welcomes New Principals

Monday, October 10, 2016

Klepper, Hahn and Hyatt welcomed two new principals to the management of the firm with a reception held at the firm in the beginning of June.

Kelly M. Covert, P.E., SECB, LEED AP, and James A. Palumbo, R.L.A., ASLA, joined Rich Applebaum, Jim D’Aloisio, and Gordon P. Hyatt in the management structure. Kelly and Jim Palumbo are vice presidents.

The five partners and their wives joined with approximately 75 guests to enjoy the gathering, which was catered by Karen’s Catering of Syracuse. The event also marked the 50th anniversary of Gordon R. Hyatt’s association with KHH. A few of Gordon’s many successful projects were on view, and he gave a nostalgic retrospective of the evolution of the firm, hearkening back to the days when “we used slide rules.  Remember those?”

The new partners look forward to continuing KHH’s tradition of excellence in both professional practice and service to its clients.
