SWIB Names New Executive Director

May 24 2007 | 8:48am ET

Keith Bozarth has been appointed executive director of the $93 billion State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB). Bozarth is replacing David Mills who, earlier this year announced his intention to retire upon appointment of a successor, agreed to remain available to assist through the transition. Bozarth will begin his duties at SWIB on June 25.

Bozarth currently serves as the CEO of the Orange County Employees Retirement System in California. Bozarth has fifteen years of experience with other public pension systems including the Teachers’ Retirement System of Illinois and both the State Employees’ and Public School Retirement systems in Missouri.

“We were pleased with the quality of the candidates interested in leading SWIB and are particularly happy with the skills and experience that Keith brings to the position,” said Jim Senty, chairman of SWIB’s board of trustees.
