Klein, founder of Belzon, a high-tech company that provides
logistics, information technology and consulting services to Department of
Defense agencies, will be an outstanding addition to the IDB, said District 4
Councilman Mike Potter.

Klein not only has experience running a successful business,
but has a proven track record of community service, said Potter, recalling that Klein served on the Madison Planning Commission before he served on the same board.

Klein, a former Army aviation officer, has worked in the
aerospace and defense industry and currently serves as headmaster at
Westminster Christian Academy. He also has served Westminster as a board member
and debate and rhetoric instructor.

He is a graduate of the Huntsville and Alabama
leadership programs and a member of the executive board of Huntsville’s
Committee of 100.

Klein has volunteered his management expertise
to several leadership organizations, including as a business coach for the
Veteran Business Assistance Center.

Klein fills the vacant Place 6 seat on the eight-member board. Potter is a non-voting member of the board as council liaison.

This article was updated Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2012, at 10 a.m. to correct a statement that said Klein and Potter served on the Planning commission at the same time. Their time on the board was not concurrent with each other.
