Key Personnel was founded in 1977 by Jess Johnston in the town of Fort Worth, TX. After managing a national staffing franchise for 19 years, Jess decided it was time to open his own agency.

In 1993 Jess passed the baton to his youngest daughter Elizabeth and her husband George Doran. Together they continued to grow the business, opening a second location in Granbury, TX. Nathan their oldest son joined the business in 2012, after graduating from The University of Texas at Arlington with a degree in Marketing. A decision was made to pivot towards a focus on light industrial, clerical and professional staffing. Since this pivot, Key Personnel has grown to over 600 employees on assignment and now has 6 offices across the Metroplex.
