UK - Suzanne Ross has taken up the role of investment director at the £3.5bn London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA), having spent the last four years as investment manager at the IBM pension fund.
Ross will take up the post on 9 October.
It is the second senior appointment made by the fund in recent times, following July's announcement that Mike Taylor would replace Peter Scales as chief executive on 18 September.
A spokesman for the fund confirmed Taylor had taken an active role in Ross' appointment.
Ross has over 20 years experience in business and financial management, and, prior to IBM, also spent time in senior management for KPMG.
