David McAuliffe was named president and chief investment officer of Berkeley Endowment Management Co., effective Dec. 1, said spokesman Jose Rodriguez in an email.
Mr. McAuliffe replaces John-Austin Saviano, who left BEMCO in the spring to start his own investment advisory firm.
Nicholas Werner, director of investments, has been serving as CIO in the interim.
Previously, Mr. McAuliffe was a senior investment officer at the University of Washington Investment Management Co., which manages the Seattle-based university's approximately $3 billion consolidated endowment fund. Keith Ferguson, chief investment officer, could not immediately be reached for information on a replacement.
