Macky Tall was named head of real assets and private equity at Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec.
Mr. Tall's role is new, as real assets and private equity is a new investment business unit for the C$340.1 billion ($260.3 billion) pension fund, a news release from CDPQ said. His job took effect April 16.
Mr. Tall will be responsible for the international private equity, infrastructure and capital solutions teams. He will report to Charles Edmond, CDPQ's new president and CEO, who stepped into the position Feb. 1.
Mr. Tall will retain his posts as president and CEO of CDPQ Infra, a subsidiary of the Montreal-based plan focused on public infrastructure projects.
Mr. Tall was also head of liquid markets at CDPQ prior to his new appointment. A search process to replace him has been launched, though he will retain those duties in the interim, the news release said.
A spokesman for CDPQ could not be immediately reached for comment.
