Since joining Ontario Teachers’ in 2000, Hindo has been responsible for the investments division and overall investment portfolio, most recently in the capital markets department. In the new role, he’ll report directly to the plan’s president and chief executive officer, Ron Mock, who has been filling in as interim chief investment officer since Bjarne Graven Larsen returned to Denmark.
