Rod Matheson takes over as head of ATRF
Rod Matheson is the new CEO of the Alberta Teachers’ Retirement Fund (ATRF).
Matheson took over the role on Nov. 17,
succeeding Emilian Groch, who announced his retirement last year after more than 20 years as ATRF’s leader.
Matheson spent more than 30 years with the Alberta government in various capacities, most recently as assistant deputy minister of treasury and risk management with the Alberta Treasury Board and Department of Finance.
“I am honoured and very excited to join ATRF,” Matheson said. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue moving the organization forward and building on the solid foundation that is already in place.”
Matheson has a bachelor of commerce degree and an MBA from the University of Alberta, as well as designations as a certified management accountant and a chartered financial analyst.
With his extensive background, Matheson is a leader with valuable expertise in finance and investment management, said ATRF board chair Greg Meeker.
“We are delighted to have Rod join our team. His experience and background are critical as ATRF continues to implement its current business strategy of excellent service to plan members and value-added, risk-controlled, long-term investment returns,” Meeker said. ❚
