SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) Board of Administration today appointed Douglas Hoffner as the Pension Fund’s Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as it completes its process for a new CEO.
“Doug is a natural choice and will do an excellent job leading CalPERS until we name a permanent CEO,” said Rob Feckner, President of the CalPERS Board. “Our recruitment is going extremely well and we have strong candidates. We expect to conclude the process in the coming weeks.”
Hoffner currently serves as CalPERS Deputy Executive Officer for Operations and Technology overseeing strategic planning, information technology, human resources, diversity and inclusion, and operations. He will assume the interim CEO post on July 1 following the June 30, 2016 retirement of CalPERS current CEO Anne Stausboll.

He was also Deputy Cabinet Secretary to former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Assistant Director for Legislation at the California Department of General Services.
