New Mexico Public Employees Retirement Association, Santa Fe, is searching for a chief investment officer, confirmed Wayne Propst, executive director.
Joelle Mevi is resigning as CIO for the $13.3 billion pension fund and deputy CIO Julian Baca will oversee the investment division in the interim, Mr. Propst said in an e-mail. It could not be learned by press time when and why Ms. Mevi is leaving the plan.
New Mexico PERA still has a vacant deputy executive director position as well after Mary Frederick recently retired.
The job posting is available on the National Association of State Retirement Administrators’ website.
Mr. Propst said he expects to have a new CIO in place by November.
Ms. Mevi could not be reached.
