Petya Nikolova, head of infrastructure, and Eneasz Kadziela, head of private equity, have each been promoted to deputy CIO in the New York City bureau of asset management, which handles investments for the New York City Retirement Systems.
"They will still retain their current responsibilities as head of their respective asset classes, but they will have the expanded responsibility of overseeing all private investments, not just within their asset classes," a spokeswoman for Brad Lander, the city comptroller, wrote in an email. Mr. Lander is the fiduciary for the five pension funds within the $228.2 billion New York City Retirement Systems.
Ms. Nikolova is in charge of $4.7 billion in infrastructure assets, and Mr. Kadziela supervises $22.7 billion in private equity assets.
Both report to Steven R. Meier, chief investment officer, and deputy comptroller for asset management.
