Laurie E. Martin was named deputy chief investment officer of the $30 billion Connecticut Retirement Plans & Trust Funds, Hartford, the state treasurer’s office announced in a news release Wednesday.
Ms. Martin, who started Oct. 7, succeeded Deborah Spalding; she was promoted to CIO in July 2015. The position of deputy CIO had been vacant since the promotion, said a spokesman for Treasurer Denise L. Nappier.
Ms. Martin was director of treasury services at Baystate Health, Springfield, Mass., where she oversaw about $1.7 billion in combined endowment, retirement and insurance assets and operating funds. A Baystate Health spokesman could not immediately be reached for information on a replacement.
Ms. Nappier is principal fiduciary of the Connecticut retirement system.
