Ontario Teachers picks new CIO

Ziad Hindo was named chief investment officer of the C$189.5 billion ($142.7 billion) Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, Toronto, the plan announced Tuesday in a news release.

Mr. Hindo was senior managing director, capital markets at OTPP.

He replaces Bjarne Graven Larsen, who left the pension plan in April. Ron Mock, president and CEO, had served as interim CIO.

Also, Jo Taylor was named executive managing director, global development at the pension plan, according to the release. That position is new; the news release did not detail Mr. Taylor's new responsibilities. Mr. Taylor was senior managing director, international at OTPP.

Messrs. Hindo and Taylor will report to Mr. Mock.

An OTPP spokesman would not provide further details, including who will replace Messrs. Hindo and Taylor.
