Charles A. Burbridge was named executive director of the $10.8 billion Chicago Public School Teachers' Pension & Retirement Fund, effective March 16, said a pension fund spokesman in an e-mail.
Peter A. Driscoll, who had been filling in as the pension fund's interim executive director, will stay on with CTPF through March to ensure a smooth transition. Mr. Driscoll previously led the Segal Co.'s Chicago office and served as plan administrator for Sheet Metal Workers Local 73 and Pipe Fitters' Local 597 Welfare & Retirement Funds.
Mr. Driscoll replaced Kevin B. Huber, who resigned Dec. 31. Mr. Huber was diagnosed with cancer in January 2014 and had been on medical leave since May.
Mr. Burbridge is currently the chief financial officer for the Atlanta Public Schools. He also held CFO or deputy CFO positions at the Los Angeles Unified School District, Chicago Public Schools and Illinois' Cook County, and was chief economist for the Illinois Economic and Fiscal Commission, according to the Atlanta Public Schools' website.
