Kelly Bliss

Executive Director of Business Development and Strategy, Northeast

Associate Principal

Understanding a client’s goals and what keeps them up at night is always top of mind for me. As an EYP ambassador developing client relationships, I strive to add value by offering architecture and engineering services to help advance a client’s vision or address a specific challenge. I take pride in the robust national network of clients, friends, and business partners I’ve developed over 20-plus years in the industry and feel most rewarded when I can facilitate introductions and be a helpful resource to others. Especially fulfilling roles I’ve held included serving as a guest lecturer for Northeastern University’s “Business of Architecture” graduate architecture program, a panelist for SMPS Boston “The Art of Business Development,” and Board Member of PWC Boston (Professional Women in Construction).

My admiration for the built environment stems from a youth spent in picturesque historic New England, my undergraduate years on Cornell University’s beautiful campus, as well as significant travel throughout Europe. When your photos only include buildings and not your friends, that’s a telling sign!
