Four months into new CIO Jagdeep Bachher’s tenure, longtime deputy CIO Mel Stanton has set a retirement date.

Following Stanton’s departure at the end of this month, new CIO Jagdeep Bachher will reorganize the investment office to create chief and deputy operating officer positions.

Recruiting has already begun for a host of senior positions to manage the university system’s endowment ($8 billion), defined benefit assets ($50 billion), defined contribution plan ($15 billion), liquidity pool ($9 billion), and other assets.

UC is seeking applicants for a chief of staff to manage and implement Bachher’s initiatives, serve as a senior consultant to him, and oversee the investment office’s administration.

The role of real assets investment officer has also been posted on UC’s employment website.

Taking over some of Koshland’s former responsibilities is former dean of the graduate division Andrew Szeri, whose new position is vice provost of strategic academic and facilities planning. Szeri will be responsible for reviewing academic programs and strategic planning, among other duties, according to campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof.

The administrative changes are aligned with the campus’s Undergraduate Education Initiative, intended to focus on the undergraduate experience, and date back to before July. Bob Jacobsen, who was appointed in May as interim dean of undergraduate studies in the College of Letters and Science, took on a different role than his predecessor, who held the title of dean of the undergraduate division in L&S. His duties will include focusing more on the undergraduate education in L&S, according to Jacobsen.

“What I wanted to do was get my own group and cabinet up and running,” Dirks said about the changes.
