Gary B. Bland was one of the candidates interviewed for the Oregon State Treasurys director of investments job. Mr. Bland retired last year as vice president-trust investments at Boeing Co. before the company moved to Chicago from Seattle. Linda Haglund, deputy state treasurer, said new candidates still are being considered for the Oregon job; the investment director oversees $36 billion in pension assets and $14 billion in other funds.
Whitehead Mann is assisting in the recruiting. It had contacted Mr. Bland.
