Graeme Eadie was named senior managing director and global head of real assets at the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, Toronto, which manages the assets of the C$287.3 billion ($221.1 billion) Canada Pension Plan, Ottawa, said a CPPIB spokesman in an e-mail.
Real assets is a new department for the investment board, combining the real estate investments group with the agriculture and infrastructure groups. Mr. Eadie previously was senior managing director and global head of real estate investments. That position will not be filled, the spokesman said.
Also, Shane Feeney was named senior managing director and global head of private investments. He replaces Mark Jenkins, who is leaving Friday to join alternatives money manager Carlyle Group as head of global credit. Mr. Jenkins will oversee most of the Carlyle unit previously run by Mitch Petrick. He will also become a member of Carlyle’s management committee, Carlyle said in a statement Monday. He’ll start later this month and be based in New York.
Replacing Mr. Feeney as managing director, head of direct private equity is Ryan Selwood, previously a managing director in the direct private equity group. The spokesman said a decision on a replacement for Mr. Selwood in his previous role “will be made in the coming weeks.”
CPPIB’s private investment department consists of the board’s direct private equity, natural resources, principal credit investments and portfolio value creation groups.
