KPERS Taps New Executive Director

Jan 23 2012 | 11:09am ET

The Kansas Public Employees Retirement System’s board of trustees has named Alan Conroy as KPERS’ new executive director.

In his new post, Conroy will be responsible to the board for all aspects of the fund's daily operations.

Conroy is currently director of the Kansas Legislative Research Department, the non-partisan research and fiscal agency for the Kansas Legislature, where he’s worked since 1983. Earlier in his career, he worked for the division of budget in the Kansas Department of Administration.

Conroy has over 30 years of experience in state government and fiscal analysis in both the legislative and executive branches. He served as an ex-officio member of the recent KPERS study commission and has provided staff support for the Legislature’s joint committee on pensions, investments and benefits (the legislative committee charged with ongoing KPERS oversight) over the last 20 years.

Conroy is expected to assume his new position February 13. He replaces Glenn Deck, who retired in September 2011, and takes over from acting executive director Elizabeth B.A. Miller, the system's chief investment officer.
