Beth Blalock has been named the new Brownfield Coordinator for the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, replacing Madeleine Kellam, who has led the brownfield program since its inception and will retire at the end of 2014.

Ms. Blalock is an environmental attorney (UGA, 2003), with a background in environmental and land use law. Her prior experience includes approximately five years as general counsel for the Georgia Conservancy and, previously, with King and Spalding. Beth will begin work with the Georgia EPD within the coming weeks, allowing for at least a two-month transition period, during which she can work directly with Madeleine before her retirement.
