Gregory Kelly to Speak at Graduation

The College of Engineering is proud to announce Gregory Kelly, P.E., will be speaking at the College’s Spring 2017 Graduation ceremony. A 1979 graduate, Kelly currently serves as President and CEO of the U.S., Central and South American region of WSP. He is one of eight members of the engineering and professional services organization’s Senior Executive team. In 24 years with the firm, he has worked his way up the ladder, including the roles of project manager or principal-in-charge for dozens of projects. His current role sees him leading over 7,500 employees with nearly $1.8 billion in revenue across the Western Hemisphere.

Based in New York City, he is active in various professional and charitable organizations. He also continues to influence the future, offering his expertise to universities in advisory and as a lecturer. In 2013 and 2014 he testified before Congress about public-private partnerships.

Last year the College awarded him a spot in the Gallery of Success. “As a Temple alum it is an absolute honor and privilege to address this year’s graduates,” he said. “The opportunities are limitless and it is great time to be an engineer.”
