The Teacher Retirement System of Texas has found a successor to Britt Harris.
The board of trustees officially appointed interim CIO Jerry
Albright as the $140 billion pension funds new investment
chief, TRS announced Thursday.
We feel incredibly fortunate to have someone as
capable, experienced, and knowledgeable as Jerry to fill our
CIO position, board chair David Kelly said in a
statement. Jerry has what it takes to build on our
success over the past 10 years.
Albright has worked for TRS for 23 years, including roles as
chief operating officer and director of investment operations.
He has also served as chairman of the funds internal
investment committee and as sole director of TRICOT London,

CIO before being appointed
interim CIO following Harris departure.
Jerry and his team have not only the required
institutional knowledge to carry on the progress weve
made over the past decade, but they have all the skills,
inspiration, and cultural alignment, necessary to build upon
that progress and continue our role as an industry leader for
years to come, executive director Brian Guthrie said in a
