Jason Fletcher was appointed CIO at the London Collective Investment Vehicle, London, effective in July.
Mr. Fletcher will replace Kevin Corrigan, who took on the role as interim CIO in November. Mr. Corrigan was "sourced externally and on a temporary basis whilst the recruitment for (a) permanent CIO was ongoing," a spokeswoman said in an email. She did not provide details of his previous or future roles. He was appointed following the departure of Mark Thompson.
Mr. Fletcher will lead the investment team at the £16.7 billion ($20.5 billion) investment pool.
Mr. Fletcher was CIO at the £45 billion LGPS Central Ltd., Wolverhampton, England. An LGPS spokesman said deputy CIO Gordon Ross will become interim CIO, and "we wish Jason all the best in his new role."
The London CIV announced two additional appointments.

"This role will work with our partner funds to ensure that we are creating investment solutions that align with our own responsible investment policies."
Ms. Jackson is director of business development and responsible investment at S&P Global affiliate Trucost. A Trucost spokeswoman was not immediately available to comment.
