New York City fund names interim private equity co-chiefs

J. David Enriquez and Gabriel Morrow were appointed interim co-heads of private equity in the Bureau of Asset Management, the unit of the New York City comptroller's office that manages investments for the $195 billion New York City Retirement Systems.

Messrs. Enriquez and Morrow are senior investment officers for private equity at the bureau, and they will be responsible for the pension system's $12 billion private equity portfolio.

"Over the last two years, David and Gabriel have made outstanding contributions as responsible and diligent portfolio managers," Scott Stringer, the comptroller and fiduciary for the five pension funds within the New York City system, said in a new release issued Monday.

"I have worked closely with both David and Gabriel over the last two years and am confident that together, they will lead the private equity team to continued success." Alex Done, interim chief investment officer, said in the news release.

Mr. Done, who has been deputy CIO for private markets, became interim CIO when Scott Evans left the CIO post on June 29.
