About Us

Peckham & McKenney, Inc. provides executive search services to local government agencies throughout the Western United States and is headquartered in Roseville, California with regional offices in Southern California, Colorado, and Texas. The firm was established in 2004 by Bobbi Peckham and Phil McKenney, and its Recruiters offer vast 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 80% of our placements since 2010 remain in those positions today. This is a testament to our motto that it truly is “all about fit.”

Our Philosophy

When we chose to form our own executive search firm, we did so with the goal of providing both clients and candidates unparalleled service.

We achieve this goal by limiting the number of searches we take on at any one point in time, thereby focusing more directly on those we serve. In this way, no client or candidate should ever feel “lost in the shuffle.”

Not only do we take great care of our clients and candidates, but we are very actively involved in efforts to prepare the next generation of local government managers. Our commitment to the industry is genuine, and we look forward to many years of service.
