Kevin Brandenburg is the 2021 Escambia County Employee of the Year.
Brandenburg is a specialist in fleet management within the parks and recreation department. He has been working with Escambia County since June 2014 and has already been selected as Employee of the Month for April 2021.
As a specialist in fleet maintenance, Brandenburg devotes most of the time to equipment maintenance.

He also runs an in-house team that repairs athletic field lighting and installs several baseball and football scoreboards across the county. By doing small internal repairs on various projects, it saves the Parks and Recreation department and the county as a whole thousands of dollars, which in turn can be tapped and used in various other locations for improvements and upgrades. .
“It’s a blessing to have someone who can work with other departments to get things done,” said Michael Rhodes, director of parks and recreation. “Kevin is the example of a true team player; he always thinks outside the box and communicates in a respectful and insightful manner. Kevin is an incredible asset to our Parks and Recreation department and an invaluable member of the Escambia County team.
