About Us

A Tradition of Excellence

Since 1972, we’ve provided executive search and consulting services to an array of cities, counties, special districts, state agencies, and other organizations. As one of the first in the nation to work exclusively in the public sector, we have become a leader in local government issues. We have worked hard to earn and maintain a reputation for excellence by delivering exceptional quality, meeting client objectives, and producing results on time, on budget, as promised.


The quality of an organization’s leadership determines its success. Our search consultants utilize cutting edge ideas and innovative tactics to help our clients identify and select the right person, for the right job, at the right time.



Ralph Andersen & Associates has been a leader in providing contemporary and strategic human resources consulting services since 1972. Our methodologies, tools, and expertise continue to adapt to the unique needs of public agencies.
