Placer begins search for new county executive officer

Published on September 05, 2017

Placer County Executive Officer David Boesch has announced that he will resign at the end of this calendar year.

Boesch revealed his plans to county staff via email Friday.

“I am full of pride at what we have accomplished these last few years and I plan to continue serving Placer County, just in a different capacity,” said Boesch. “I intend to remain fully engaged for the remainder of my tenure with Placer County and will do whatever I can to maintain the positive momentum we have created together.”

“When David leaves us, he will have had five and a half years of doing great things in Placer County,” said District 5 Supervisor and Board Chairwoman Jennifer Montgomery. “When we finally climbed out of the economic downturn, David was instrumental in bringing on some really great additions to county staff. He will leave us in a very strong strategic position moving forward. I thank him for his service to the residents and taxpayers of Placer County and wish him the very best in all his endeavors going forward.”

The Board of Supervisors discussed plans to begin recruiting for a successor during closed session at today’s board meeting.

“The board is pleased that David is willing to stay on until the end of the year to allow for a smooth transition,” Montgomery added.

Boesch has served as CEO for Placer County since June of 2012.
