Colorado PERA takes interim tag off executive director

Ron Baker

Ron Baker was named executive director of the $49 billion Colorado Public Employees' Retirement Association, Denver, said Katie Kaufmanis, spokeswoman, in an email.

Mr. Baker had been interim executive director since the December 2017 death of former executive director Gregory W. Smith, who died suddenly while vacationing with his family in Hawaii.

Mr. Baker was previously PERA's chief administrative officer. His appointment is pending contract negotiations and board approval of the contract.
