CalPERS Taps Stausboll as CEO

After a lengthy search, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) has named former interim chief investment officer Anne Stausboll as CEO. Stausboll becomes the first woman to lead the Sacramento, Calif.-based system in its 77-year history.

She will oversee 2,300 employees and a $332 million annual budget for the system, which has $182 billion in assets under management.

Stausboll first served as CalPERS’ deputy general counsel in the late 1990s before leaving to become general counsel for California State Treasurer Phil Angelides in 1999. She was appointed the state’s chief deputy treasurer in 2000 before returning to direct CalPERS’ real estate investment program four years ago.
