Claudia von Flotow

Development Director

After a brief academic career in Geophysics, Claudia joined KDC as Development Director to act on her passion for placemaking. She sees development as not just an opportunity to build new structures, but a vehicle to create places that offer dynamic connections to citizens and communities.

At Key, she oversees projects in Portland and Hood River — negotiating contracts, preparing budgets, and coordinating private and public parties’ design and tracking schedules. In addition to leading people and processes, she provokes discourse with diverse stakeholders to create cohesive strategies for development.
