IMRF is proud to thank outgoing Employee Trustee, John Piechocinski, for his service to the Board of Trustees.
Piechocinski is retiring today from the Plainfield Community Consolidated School District. As a result, the law requires he step down from his Employee Trustee position. Piechocinski exits the Board after having served for 5-1/2 years.
During his tenure, Piechocinski served on multiple committees and held all three Board officer positions (serving as Board President in 2015). Some of his accomplishments include supporting:
- The development of IMRF’s 2014-2016 Strategic Plan
- Investment strategies that grew the portfolio by more than $9 billion
- The introduction of new customer-service technologies
- The replacement of IMRF’s website
- The launch of a new corporate brand
At Piechocinski’s last Board meeting in May, he said that he regretted having to step down from the position.
"I will miss working with the Board and the staff at IMRF," Piechocinski said. "I enjoyed my time representing all members at IMRF."
The Board has appointed Alex Wallace, an employee of Oswego Community Unit School District 308, to fill the vacancy effective July 1 through the end of 2016. IMRF active members will elect a candidate to fill the remainder of Piechocinski’s term, which runs through December 31, 2020.
