Chris Lenox was promoted to the newly created role of deputy chief investment officer at Johns Hopkins University, a spokesman confirmed by email.
The Baltimore-based university also promoted Katherine Harman to managing director of investments, according to a Tuesday news release.
The appointments were effective Oct. 25, and both Mr. Lenox and Ms. Harman will continue reporting to Jason Perlioni, chief investment officer.
In his new role, Mr. Lenox will "provide additional strategic leadership to the investment office, working closely" with Mr. Perlioni to "manage the more than $8 billion in endowment and other assets for the university and the Johns Hopkins Hospital System," the release added.
In her new role, Ms. Harman will be responsible for "primary diligence on new and existing investment opportunities and will continue leading our strategy for private equity and buyout investments," the release added.
Mr. Lenox formerly served as managing director of investments, while Ms. Harman was director of investments.
"As these are promotions expanding responsibility, their previously held roles are not being backfilled," the spokesman noted.
