Melissa Kelley-Jones

Business Development Operations Director | Associate
No matter what Melissa is doing, she does it with a smile and a laugh. As Henderson Engineers’ strategic business development leader and an associate, “MK” guides our firm’s national business development efforts. Helping facilitate annual planning and pursuits, she plays an integral role in procuring work, building lasting client relationships, and planning and executing client events.

A big fan of elevating our doers to embrace their seller side, MK also leads Henderson’s Business Development Academy, a yearly professional development series that takes traditional business development techniques and infuses them with our processes and one-of-a-kind culture. Known for a shrewd ability to connect with pretty much anyone and everyone, MK is a perfect example that we’re about more than buildings – we’re about people, experiences, and potential. Oh, and humor – she always brings the jokes. We’re not kidding.
