Mark Yusko has been named CIO at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He will oversee $645 million, most of which is endowment assets.
Mr. Yusko previously was senior investment director at the University of Notre Dame du Lac, Notre Dame, Ind., where his duties will be shared by existing staff. At UNC, he replaces Wayne Morgan, who joined Wachovia last year.
Wayne Jones, treasurer of UNC-Chapel Hill, said the investment office is likely to hire another investment professional, but that will be Mr. Yusko's call.
