CalPERS is Hiring!

Are you a team-oriented manager who is committed to diversity and has experience dealing with multiple and diverse (and often warring) constituent groups? If so, good news: The California Public Employees’ Retirement System just announced that its search for a new CEO is officially underway. Qualifications for the job include:

  • Broad and extensive management experience in a large organization with multiple lines of business and strong leadership skills.
  • A demonstrated track record of success, evidence of strategic leadership abilities, and the capacity to build effective and mutually respectful relationships with a governing board.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to foster, manage and lead successful, high functioning teams at all levels of an organization.
  • High ethical standards, sound judgment, and a strategic focus balanced with consensus building skills.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, list of six work-related references, and current salary to resumes@cps.ca.gov. (Ask for a lot. The CEO oversees 2,300 employees, a budget of more than $332 million, and operations that include health and retirement benefits administration, investments, actuarial and employer services, supplemental retirement programs, a long-term care program, government affairs, and stakeholder relations, among other things.)
