Eden Prairie, Minn.-based Westwood Professional Services Inc., a national energy and land development consultant, has hired John Knight, formerly of Knight Land Services (KLS) Inc., and five KLS staff members for Westwood's energy development group. The move extends Westwood's professional offerings to include energy real estate services to support the needs of energy developers at a project's onset.

"This strategic hire is a classic 'win-win' for both Westwood and KLS staff," says Paul Greenhagen, Westwood's vice president and director of energy services. "The addition of John and his team will help us get involved in the development process earlier and provide a more comprehensive package of services to our energy clients."
 
Knight and the KLS staff will form an energy real estate services team at Westwood that will focus initially on educating landowners and obtaining signed leases for wind power developers.

Westwood's addition of KLS staff has prompted the opening of a new office location in Rapid City, S.D.
