Ruth Ryerson, executive director and chief investment officer of the Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund, has resigned to accept employment with the Wyoming Retirement System, a statewide pension system serving 700 employees and more than 65,000 active and retired members. Ryerson’s resignation takes effect July 31, 2013. The Fort Worth Retirement Fund’s board of trustees has not yet begun discussing finding a successor, said spokeswoman Mary Kay Glass. “I have loved my time in Fort Worth,” Ryerson said in a news release. “The members have always been our main priority, and I appreciate their positive feedback and support during my seven years with the Retirement Fund,” Ryerson said. While serving the Retirement Fund, Ryerson wrote policies and procedures for the board, including those involving ethics, travel, education and due diligence. She introduced a system of competitive requests for proposals to acquire custodian and consulting services for investments. Before assuming her Fort Worth duties, Ryerson served as CEO of the Colorado Fire and Police Pension Association from 1993 to 2006. She was a deputy executive director from 1991 to 1993, and accounting manager from 1987 to 1991. In her seven years at the Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund, Ryerson served as secretary-treasurer of the Fort Worth Police and Fire Memorial Board and was a member of the Rotary Club of Fort Worth South. “Ruth has been a great leader during a time of transition for the Fund,” said Billy Samuel, chairman of the Retirement Fund board of trustees. “The Wyoming Retirement System is very fortunate to acquire Ruth’s passion and talent for administering pension plans. Her leaving is a great loss to the retirement fund, our members and the city of Fort Worth,” Samuel said.
