PSERS CIO Leaves for Lehigh

Peter Gilbert has agreed to become chief investment officer for Lehigh University's endowment fund, after having previously served as CIO for the $32 billion Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System. He begins at Lehigh on July 30. PSERS says that it will begin its search for a successor during next Wednesday's board meeting.


Before overseeing the Pennsylvania employees pension plan, Gilbert was director of the Mayor's Pension Unit in the City of New York's Department of Finance from 1990-1993, and previously worked for a decade in the City of New York's Office of the Comptroller.
