January 19, 2010 - Broadlands Financial Group, LLC, an international owner's representative and construction controls services firm based in Villanova, PA, has added a number of key personnel to its renewable energy group in response to a surge in projects under contract. The company named Gage Kellogg as Senior Vice President of Renewable Energy and announced that Terrence Hottle has joined Broadlands as Vice President of Engineering – Energy.
Mr. Kellogg has been with Broadlands since 2002. He led the project controls team at Broadlands for Nevada Solar One, a 64 MW CSP plant in Boulder City, NV.
Mr. Hottle brings over 30 years of energy experience, including design and construction of nuclear reactors and major solar plants, as well as waste-to-energy facilities.

Broadlands Executive Vice President, Bryan Fortay, said Broadlands is quickly becoming the international leader in owner, lender and investor controls and project management in the renewable energy marketplace. "Broadlands currently has a renewable energy pipeline of nearly one billion dollars with projects in the United States, Asia and Africa. Project owners and lenders see real value in the experience we bring to the table and the strategies we carry out to maximize return on investment," Mr. Fortay said.
Broadlands has recently been engaged to provide a variety of project controls, program management and consulting services because of its ability to deliver the necessary diversity of professional expertise, including engineers, accountants, project managers, attorneys, scheduling experts and budget controls professionals. "For twenty years we have been implementing development and project controls that ensure the on-time, on-budget delivery of construction projects. Our renewable energy clients are benefiting from our ability to drive project costs down and maximize investment returns and many others are taking notice," Fortay said.
