New Executive Director of KPPA Named

The Kentucky Public Pension Authority held a special meeting on Wednesday, March 27, to announce their decision to hire Ryan Barrow as the next executive director of KPPA.

Barrow currently serves as the Executive Director of the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for the state of Kentucky. The KPPA Board announced the hiring would be effective pending contract negotiations and background checks.

Kentucky Public Pensions Authority Executive Director David Eager announced his decision to retire last year. Eager’s decision kicked off a 6-month long search by KPPA to name his replacement.

According to the board, Barrow is expected to join the KPPA officially on July 1, 2024, with a training period beginning this May and or June.
