The executive director of Wyoming’s $8.5 billion pension fund will retire in July. Ruth Reyerson is departing after almost six years, staying on to help the transition as the Wyoming Retirement System searches for her successor.
Staff praised Reyerson’s accomplishments, such as her “focus on building a strong management team at every level of the organization,” according to Laura Ladd, the pension plan’s board chair. Ladd also highlighted Reyerson’s guidance on launching the fund’s online pension administration system.
“The new system dramatically improved service to our membership, making it possible for every member to log in at their convenience and obtain account information,” she said.
