Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System, Harrisburg, is seeking an executive search firm to help the $27 billion pension fund hire a chief investment officer.
According to SERS spokeswoman Pamela Hile, the search is being conducted to help find a replacement for Anthony S. Clark, who retired Dec. 31 amid allegations of withholding information on a deal involving one of the pension fund's money managers and conducting personal business from his state office.
Thomas F. Brier has been serving as acting CIO since the PennSERS board appointed him in March.
The RFP is available on the state's procurement website. Proposals are due June 12. PennSERS is looking to have a firm selected by mid-July.
