Eric Nierenberg was named a senior investment officer responsible for hedge fund strategies by the Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Management Board. Nierenberg, who is expected to start his new job in December, currently teaches finance at Brandeis University, and is a former portfolio manager at Lee Munder Capital Group.
