Halifax (Nova Scotia) Regional Municipality Pension Plan hired executive search firm Odgers Berndtson to help the C$1.8 billion ($1.4 billion) pension fund select a new CEO, said Dan White, co-chairman of the plan's pension committee.
In June, Terri Troy, the pension plan's current CEO, announced she would retire in October; she now will remain with the plan until later this month, Mr. White said. The plan will appoint an interim CEO once Ms. Troy departs. Ms. Troy was the plan's first CEO, appointed in 2006.
A selection of a permanent CEO is expected near the end of the first quarter or the start of the second quarter in 2018, Mr. White said.
