New Mexico State Investment Council, located in Santa Fe, is searching for a State Investment Officer (CEO) to lead this independent state investment agency managing nearly $45 billion in assets. The SIC is the third largest U.S. Sovereign Wealth Fund and ranks in the Top 30 globally. Their assets are expected to grow to around $100 billion in the next 10 years.
The current SIO has announced his retirement after over 13 years. This is an exceptional opportunity to work with a highly regarded board and lead an organization with a long history of delivering strong investment performance.
Serving functionally as the CEO, the SIO is responsible and accountable for the financial performance and operational effectiveness of the organization. A significant portion of the responsibilities are external facing and outreach to continue the positive relationships with the Legislature, Governor’s Office, Treasurer’s Office, clients, and other stakeholders.
Leading a team of ~25, the SIO has four direct reports – Deputy State Investment Officer & Chief Investment Officer, Chief Counsel, Director of Communication, Legislative & Client Affairs, and the Chief Financial Officer & Administrative Services Director.
The Council desires a strategic executive with a respected level of investment knowledge and an understanding of the basic tenets of institutional asset management, experience overseeing related administrative and investment functions, and experience managing external stakeholder relations.
