About our County Executive Officer
David Boesch began as County Executive Officer in June 2012. Prior to coming to Placer County, he most recently served as the county officer for San Mateo County in the San Francisco Bay Area. He earned degrees in urban planning and public administration, and worked in community and economic development in New Hampshire before heading for California where he served as a department head in Sunnyvale, city manager in Menlo Park and then county manager in San Mateo County.
As Placer County’s CEO, his top priority is providing leadership and using his experience to help the county build upon the strong foundation already in place. He believes Placer County has done an outstanding job handling the challenges created by the economic slowdown and state budget crisis. He will work to keep costs and revenue in balance, complete projects that have been deferred because of budget constraints and continue promoting a stronger county and more innovative organization that provides high-quality services and has a clear vision of the future.
He enjoys working at the local government level because it makes a difference in the lives of residents on a daily basis. County government has always been particularly appealing to him because it provides a broad range of services that impact the health, safety and well-being of residents.
The County Executive Officer is the chief administrative officer of the County. Appointed by the Board, the County Executive is responsible to the Board of Supervisors for the proper and efficient administration of the affairs of the County as prescribed in the County Charter and by formal action of the Board.
Subject to Board confirmation, the CEO selects all appointive department heads, with the exception of the County Counsel (Board appointee) and the Personnel Director (Civil Service Commission appointee).
