Inslee hires headhunters to find state agency leaders

By The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Gov.-elect Jay Inslee has hired an Olympia head hunting firm to find the best people to lead Washington’s top agencies in his administration.

The Olympian newspaper reports Inslee has told all Gov. Chris Gregoire’s cabinet members that they will need to reapply for their jobs if they want to continue leading a state agency.

In the meantime, Karras Consulting is posting ads seeking people to lead the Department of Transportation, the Department of Social and Health Services, Employment Security, Labor and Industries and other top state jobs.

So far, a few incumbents — including Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond — are asking to stay on.
