Peckham & McKenney provides executive search services to local government agencies throughout the Western United States and is headquartered in Roseville, California. The firm was established as a partnership in 2004 by Bobbi Peckham and Phil McKenney, who serve as the firm’s Recruiters and bring over 50 years’ combined experience in local government and executive search.

We believe that an executive search firm must be dedicated to providing professional service and a personal, hands-on approach, thereby guaranteeing the best “fit” in the candidates that we place with our client agencies. Our business philosophy centers upon the understanding that this is a “people” related industry and that attention to others’ needs is the key to effective customer service. Not only are we committed to providing our clients with well-qualified candidates, but we also take pride in treating both our clients and candidates with utmost respect. This commitment has lead to numerous repeat clients, multi-year retainer agreements, and an abundance of testimonials.

Having assisted hundreds of local government agencies, we are proud that over 90% of our placements remain in those positions today. This is a testament to our motto that it truly is “all about fit.”
