Adam Lincoln, City Manager, City of Pasco

Pasco is a growing community with diverse economic interests. We have huge opportunities ahead of us, and landing the right person in this key position is crucial to the future of our community. The TS Talent Solutions team garnered an impressive candidate pool for the position. Their efforts allowed our team to come to the interview process with an open mind and a number of good options to consider.

Keith Eich, City Councilmember, City of La Cañada Flintridge

We had a number of incredible firms bid, but ultimately it was the demonstrated history of working with our community and TS Talent Solutions’ commitment to client service that compelled us to select the firm. Ryder and the team at TS Talent Solutions were the perfect partners for the City Council. They generated an incredible pool of talent for us to consider and ultimately positioned us to make a choice that won unanimous approval. It is clear that Ryder and his team know local government and have a keen understanding of local government, but equally important is that they really took the time to hear each council member about their concerns and hopes for the next City Manager.

Jason Holley, City Manager, City of American Canyon

With our diverse natural surroundings, we wanted a Parks and Recreation Director who would take advantage of American Canyon’s unique location and attributes. TS Talent Solutions searched high and low to find talented applicants. We found an excellent new Parks and Recreation Director in Alexandra Ikeda, and I am confident she will deliver for our community.

Scott Collins, City Manager, City of Morro Bay

It was particularly important that the person hired for this role was not just knowledgeable as a Public Works Director, but was also a people-person, customer-service oriented and would fit in well in our close-knit community. Bria took the job description we were working with and turned it into a message that the type of individual we were hoping to hire would respond to. The brochure received several compliments from applicants and really represented our culture, which I think helped us attract a different calibre of applicant.

Assistant City Manager, City of La Cañada Flintridge

The team in La Cañada Flintridge knew that hiring for a technical position like a city engineer would be difficult.

The resulting materials were excellent and valuable throughout the recruitment process.

The City of Menifee made the right decision to partner with TS Talent Solutions to find our new CFO. Their extensive knowledge of local government, excellent client service and comprehensive search process helped us find the right candidate.

John Moreno, City Manager, City of Paramount

The Finance Director position is one of the hardest to recruit for in municipal government. Tripepi Smith is a longtime partner of the City of Paramount, so we knew we could count on them given their track record of high quality work and outreach.

Ryan Smoot, City Manager, City of Lomita

Our City Council has a reputation for being efficient, collaborative and respectful of each other–even when they disagree. Their success sets the tone for the rest of our team at city hall, so investing in a healthy discussion and affirming a report that defines their vision and expectations is important to my team. Tripepi Smith is well known to our City Council since many of them have seen how the firm has positively impacted our communications related to water services and coronavirus. Tripepi Smith designated two of their senior leaders who possess a wide spectrum of local government experience to lead the discussion, and the results were tremendously valuable to the City Council, City Staff and our budget planning process.

Miranda Lutzow, City Manager, City of Manteca

Manteca might be a quiet bedroom community with a strong agricultural heritage, but there is nothing sleepy about our community. The residents deserve top quality service from their local government, and I know as a leader that takes a strong bench of talent. TS Talent Solutions took an innovative approach to helping us share the story of Manteca’s evolution and our unique offering for talented local government professionals. Through TS Talent Solutions, we were able to hire professionals who are making a difference in our community and to their teammates here at city hall.
