Charles Thomas “Tom” Tull has announced plans to retire as chief investment officer of the Austin-based Texas Employees Retirement System, spokeswoman Mary Jane Wardlow said Thursday.
Mr. Tull plans to leave the $29 billion pension system in the summer of 2021.
Executive search firm Korn Ferry will assist the retirement system in seeking as replacement.
“It has been an honor and pleasure to serve ERS in a number of roles over the years and I hope to continue to serve in whatever capacity I can to contribute for the benefit of the Trust and its beneficiaries,” Mr. Tull said in a news release. “In turn, I have been very fortunate at ERS to have had a tremendous Board and IAC to work with as well as an excellent team.”
Mr. Tull joined ERS in 2009 as director of strategic research. He was named CIO of ERS in 2012.
