CalPERS today heralded the re-election of CalPERS Board president Rob Feckner in a unanimous decision at its latest board meeting on January 14.

“Once again, I’m humbled by the trust my colleagues have placed in me and I appreciate their faith in my leadership,” said Feckner in a statement.

Priya Mathur, a principal financial analyst for Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), was also elected unanimously to the vice president post. She replaced George Diehr, who served in the position for 6 years. Mathur, who also chairs the Pension and Health Benefits committee, has served on CalPERS boards since 2003.

“Members of the Board submit names for nomination,” said a spokesperson for the California pension fund in a email to the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute, “Ms. Mathur’s was the only name submitted” for the VP role.

“I am honored to be elected vice-president of the Board,” said Mathur in a statement. “I look forward to working in this capacity with my colleagues, our dedicated staff and our constituents to make sure that we offer well-managed, high-quality benefit programs for California’s hard-working public employees.”
