The city of Phoenix has chosen Bob Murray and Associates, a company from Roseville, Calif., to conduct a national recruitment for the city’s next city manager.

The city’s current city manager, David Cavazos, will leave Phoenix on Oct. 16 to become city manager in Santa Ana, Calif.

Bob Murray and Associates will be charged with conducting a nationwide search for candidates, as city officials have promised to search within the city and across the nation for applicants.

The company was chosen over two others, Affion Public of Harrisburg, Penn., and CPS HR Consulting of Sacremento, Calif. Bob Murray and Associates was the most expensive of the three, charging $20,500 and up to $8,500 for expenses. The company was approved unanimously by the City Council without any discussion during the formal City Council meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

The next city manager will not be able to spike his or her pension, like Cavazos will be able to, according to Mayor Greg Stanton.

Assistant City Manager Ed Zuercher has been named Cavazos’ replacement while a search takes place.
