Dedicated Service: Robert Sexton Shines in the Southlake Community Services Department

Building Operations Supervisor Robert Sexton sets a stellar example of what it means to serve on Team Southlake.

During the City of Southlake’s 2024 Employee Appreciation Week, a special honor was bestowed upon Robert Sexton, a dedicated member of the Community Services Department. Selected for the prestigious Director’s Award, Robert’s commitment and hard work have not only set him apart as a leader, but have also exemplified the very best of what Southlake employees offer to their community.

“Robert is the type of person who is always there to help,” said Community Services Director David Miller when asked about his choice for this award. “He is the consummate teammate and the person who will show up early to help without being asked, or stay late after a meeting to help take down.”

Robert’s journey to Southlake began almost a year and a half ago when he transitioned from the City of Hurst, where he had served for 23 years. His extensive experience and passion for community service made him an immediate asset to Southlake’s team.

“I love making a difference,” Robert explained. “There’s nothing better than walking into an area of the city and making a change for the better that people notice the next time they’re around.”

In his current role, Robert oversees the day-to-day operations of The Marq, including all maintenance-related issues with Champions Club, Legends Hall, and the Aquatic Center. Each day begins with checking work orders and conducting a thorough inspection of the facilities to ensure everything is in top condition for valued members and residents to enjoy.

Robert Sexton’s story is a testament to the high standards of service and dedication upheld by Southlake’s employees. His hard work and commitment have not only earned him the Director’s Award, but have also made a lasting positive impact on the community.
