Raynald Leveque was named chief investment officer of the $11.5 billion New Hampshire Retirement System, Concord, spokesman Marty Karlon said in an email.
He replaces Larry Johansen, who retired Sept. 1. Mr. Leveque, who will join the retirement system Oct. 1, was previously deputy chief investment officer for the $43 billion Connecticut Retirement Plans & Trust Funds, Hartford.
Mr. Leveque resigned from his position at Connecticut effective Sept. 8, and CIO Ted Wright said in a statement: "Ray's expertise in tactical and strategic asset allocation and risk management made our group stronger and smarter, and we deeply appreciate his contributions. We wish him the very best in his new position." A spokeswoman said Mr. Leveque’s responsibilities will be filled by other investment staff while a search begins for his replacement.
