Missouri State Employees' Retirement System, Jefferson City, is searching for an executive search firm to conduct a search for an executive director, said spokeswoman Candy Smith.
Executive Director Gary Findlay has announced he intends to retire from the $8.1 billion pension fund on Dec. 31, 2015. He joined the pension fund as executive director in August 1994.
Ms. Smith said in a telephone interview that MOSERS hopes to have a new executive director in place by July 1, 2015, for a six-month transition period before Mr. Findlay departs.
The pension fund has posted an RFP for the executive search firm on its website. Proposals are due at 4:30 p.m. CDT on April 30.
