George Meyer III resigned Monday as chief investment officer of the $1.6 billion Louisiana School Employees' Retirement System, Baton Rouge, confirmed Charles Bujol, executive director.
The resignation takes effect immediately. Christopher Saik, investment officer, was named the interim CIO “administratively,” pending board approval at its January meeting, Mr. Bujol said.
Mr. Bujol declined to comment further, and Mr. Meyer could not be immediately reached. He has been the pension fund's CIO since September 2012 following the retirement of Brendan Brosnan.
