At the City of Keller, we recognize that our greatest asset is our workforce: the hundreds of employees who work hard every day to ensure our citizens and visitors receive exceptional customer service. Our employees live by our City of Keller Core Values:


Even among the many employees who help us succeed, there are those who exemplify these Core Values with every word and deed.  Every year, six employees are selected as Employee of the Year winners - one for each Core Value, and one Overall winner. We are proud to celebrate our most recent Core Value Keepers!

Core Value: Excellence
Sarah Hensley, Management Assistant-Administration

"The City has a lot to offer employees in terms of competitive benefits, nice facilities and a pleasant and responsible community that can be both challenging and rewarding to serve. After a little over two years here, however, what stands out most to me is the quality of employees you find all over the organization. Working alongside people that adhere to such high standards, regardless of their role or department, makes you better. I can’t think of anyone I’ve worked with in Keller that doesn’t deserve this award just as much as – if not more than – I do."    

Core Value: Integrity 
Kim Hamm, IT Network Analyst-Information Technology

"I enjoy working with my co-workers and my supervisor.  We are a great team with a unified goal of providing our customers with the best possible end result.  I also enjoy being a part of this organization’s nurturing culture… it gives me reason to feel proud, energized, and appreciated."


Core Value: Service
Robert Campbell, Facility Manager-Facilities Maintenance

"Working at the City of Keller has been the most positive and productive part of my life. It is an honor to work with the most positive and engaged group of people I’ve ever worked with."


Core Value: Creativity 
Geraldo Rodriguez, Field Service Maintenance Technician-Finance/Utility Billing

"One of the many things I like about working in Keller are the people. From my co-workers to our residents, in the little time I've worked here everybody has been so nice."


Core Value: Communication 
Liz Pixley, Library Clerk I-Library

"I'm still very surprised, yet appreciative of the honor bestowed on me today.  I love working for the city of Keller, we are more than just a team, I feel like we are a family.  We all have different jobs, different departments, provide different services, but what bonds us together is our desire to serve our community, and strive to always give our best. I'm so blessed to work for the city of Keller. I love my job!"
