Effective June 4, 2021, Dominic Garcia, CIO will be ending his service at PERA to pursue a new professional opportunity.

“It has been a pleasure and honor to serve PERA for 8 years, and the last 4 years as CIO. Together, we achieved so much to ensure PERA has a sustainable and prosperous 21st century,” said Dominic.

“Thank you to Dominic for all his hard work. Our members and staff have benefited greatly from his contributions. PERA wishes Dominic nothing but the best and thanks him for his service. Kristin Varela, Deputy CIO, who has served under Dominic since 2017, will lead the Investments team in the interim,” said Greg Trujillo, Interim Executive Director.

We want to iterate the strength of the plan and remind our fellow New Mexicans of the dedication that all PERA staff hold to the current and future financial security of our members. This dedication to our mission as well as the service to our members is larger than one person and will be carried-on through the highly qualified and dedicated employees of PERA.
