Kim France on Tuesday was named interim executive director of the $5 billion New Hampshire Retirement System, Concord.
Ms. France, currently director of administration, was appointed by the system's board of trustees and will hold both titles until a permanent executive director is named, Marty Karlon, the system's public information officer, said in an interview. She has worked for the system for 10 years in various leadership roles.
Richard W. Ingram, the previous executive director, was named executive director of the $33.2 billion Illinois Teachers' Retirement System, Springfield, on Jan. 5.
Mr. Karlon said the board of trustees has not made a decision about the search process.
“The board didn't want to rush into a decision about replacing Dick Ingram. It was more important to trustees to get a qualified interim director in place and then to develop a plan for searching for a permanent replacement,” Mr. Karlon said.
