Eneasz Kadziela has been named head of private equity in the bureau of asset management, which handles investments for New York City Retirement Systems.
The appointment takes effect immediately, according to a news release issued Wednesday by Scott M. Stringer, the city comptroller and fiduciary for the five pension plans within the $269.3 billion New York City Retirement Systems.
Private equity accounts for $18.5 billion of total assets in the retirement system.
Mr. Kadziela joined the bureau of asset management in 2015 and has been a senior investment officer since 2017.
He replaces J. David Enriquez, who left the job in April. A spokeswoman for Mr. Stringer declined to comment on Mr. Enriquez's departure.
"Eneasz's extensive private equity experience and deep commitment to the mission of the bureau of asset management make him an ideal leader for this role," said Alex Done, deputy comptroller for asset management and the pension system's CIO, in the news release.
