Kathryn Wojciechowski and Steve Spook were named senior investment officers at the $149.7 billion Florida State Board of Administration, Tallahassee, the board announced Wednesday.
Ms. Wojciechowski will work with fixed income, which has $30 billion in assets, and Mr. Spook will work with real estate, which has $8.4 billion in assets.
They replace Robert Smith and Doug Bennett, respectively. Mr. Smith retired May 16 as senior investment officer-fixed income, and Mr. Bennett retired June 30 as senior investment officer-real estate, John Kuczwanski, FSBA communications manager, said in an e-mail.
Ms. Wojciechowski was promoted from senior portfolio manager of short-term portfolio management, which has $19 billion in assets, and mortgage-backed securities analysis, which has $9.9 billion. Mr. Spook was the board’s senior portfolio manager-principal investments, which consists of direct-owned and internally managed real estate, totaling $4.3 billion.
Both will report to Kevin SigRist, deputy executive director.
Existing staff members are “performing duties until Steve and Kathryn have the opportunity to assess their teams,” Mr. Kuczwanski wrote in the e-mail.
