Mayor Rogero Makes Two Staff Appointments

Posted: 08/29/2013
Mayor Madeline Rogero today announced two new personnel appointments to her administration. Lance Campbell, a real estate professional, has been hired as Real Estate Manager; and Keith Shields, Deputy Director of Fleet Services, was promoted to Director of Fleet Services.

Lance Campbell - Real Estate Manager

Campbell replaces Lee Miracle, who retired from the position of Real Estate Manager on Aug. 1st after 17 years with the City of Knoxville.

A state certified general real estate appraiser and licensed real estate broker, Campbell has more than 25 years of experience as an appraiser and real estate broker. He is a native of Blount County and a graduate of the University of Miami, where he received a bachelor's degree in Real Estate.

He owned his own appraisal company in Miami for 20 years before returning to East Tennessee in 2010. Campbell is a member of the National Association of Realtors@ and NARAMU, the National Association of Review Appraisers and Mortgage Underwriters. He is married with two children and is an active member of the UT Parents Association and a volunteer in fund-raisers for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

"It is a wonderful opportunity to serve the citizens of Knoxville and Mayor Rogero as Real Estate Manager," Campbell said. "Having responsibility for real property acquisitions for capital projects and maintaining the City's real estate inventory will be a challenging yet rewarding new role for me."

Keith Shields - Director of Fleet Services

Keith Shields began in Fleet Services at the City of Knoxville in 2010 after working for the trucking industry in several roles. His transportation/logistics experience includes dispatch, customer service and operations. He also served as Traffic Manager in outbound product distribution for Frito Lay.

"I am pleased to be named the Director of Fleet Services and look forward to successfully maintaining the City of Knoxville's vehicles, which are used to deliver essential public services to our citizens," Shields said. "Our goal to make the City's fleet greener by adding dozens of flex-fuel vehicles and hybrid cars, while continuing to research and evaluate Alternative Fuel vehicles, will ultimately save taxpayers money and help improve air quality in our region."

A graduate of The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where he received his bachelor's degree in business, Shields has a military background and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Transportation Corps upon graduation. He served in the military and is a member of the East Tennessee Military Affairs Council and the American Legion. He is a native of Columbia, TN, and is married.
