Kendrick promoted to HR director
Kendrick succeeds Lisa Marley, who has retired after 41 years in the industry.
Kendrick’s new duties will include managing the operations and activities of the City’s Human Resources and Risk Management Department; administering policies and procedures related to City employment; overseeing benefits, the City’s self-insurance fund, and its employee health clinic and wellness program; and serving as civil service director. Civil service is the set of laws governing the employment of firefighters and police officers.
“I believe our human resources are the key to the City’s success, both now and in the future,” Kendrick said. “When we have the right people in the right roles, it allows for the efficient delivery of programs and services for our residents. I am excited to get to work.”
Kendrick joined the City 10 years ago after having worked two years in the City of Dallas. In addition to serving as city clerk, he has worked in financial positions in the Budget office and at San Angelo Regional Airport. As city clerk, he managed the City’s records, administered City elections, processed requests for public information and served as the staff liaison to the City Council.
“City clerk is a demanding, high-level job that requires critical thinking and finely honed organizational skills,” City Manager Daniel Valenzuela said. “Those traits match up nicely with the job of our HR director. Bryan is a forward-thinking self-starter who has performed fantastically as city clerk. We expect the same from him in his new post.”
Deputy City Clerk Julia Antilley will serve as interim city clerk.
