Hacking returns to Minnesota to oversee the teachers' pension program
Laurie Fiori Hacking is leaving the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System at the end of February to oversee the teachers' pension program in Minnesota. Hacking was executive director of Minnesota's public employees fund from 1991 to 1996. The Ohio Public Employees Retirement System is that state's largest public pension fund, covering 370,000 workers, 315,000 former public employees who still have retirement accounts, and 150,000 retirees. The fund has assests of $68.6 billion, from $56.6 billion when Hacking became the executive director in 2000.
