The Employer of Excellence award, in recognition of Mouser’s dedication to
economic development, community giving and educational initiatives, was
presented at today’s luncheon during the annual conference of the Texas
Workforce Commission at the Gaylord in Grapevine.

“We want to thank Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County for this recognition.
It is a tremendous honor,” says Glenn Smith, President and CEO of Mouser
Electronics. “It gives me great personal satisfaction to know that our hard
work over the years has impacted so many people in a beneficial way.”

Judy McDonald, Executive Director of Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County
said: “Mouser’s deep commitment as an active partner with workforce and
economic development, as well as the education system, has made them one of
the region’s most valuable assets.”

The distributor employs nearly 1,000 people at its global headquarters in
Mansfield and pumps more than $835 million into our economy every year. In the
schools, employees regularly speak to classes and serve on advisory boards.
Just this past year, Mouser staff members offered their expertise to the local
high school robotics team and helped students build a solar car. The community
involvement helped earn Mouser the nomination and recognition as a finalist
for Employer of the Year for Texas.

“Our employees are working every day to make a difference in the community.
Through our ongoing sponsorships and partnerships with schools, we are
committed to fostering educational innovation and excellence particularly in
math and science,” adds Paula Holcomb, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of
Human Resources, who has overseen Mouser’s recent hiring surge. “Our hope is
to motivate students to further explore careers in engineering and advanced
technologies.”

One highlight this year was a live audio and video link Mouser sponsored that
gave Mansfield students a question and answer session with NASA’s Expedition
30 crew aboard the International Space Station. Holcomb notes that Mouser also
actively gives back to the community through involvement in several charity
programs, including Race for the Cure, Tarrant Area Food Bank, Habitat for
Humanity and others.
