SBCERS Welcomes Greg Levin CEO
October 16, 2014


The Board of Retirement of the Santa Barbara County Employees' Retirement System is pleased to announce that Greg Levin, CPA, currently serving as its Interim Chief Executive Officer, has accepted the position of permanent Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Levin brings a strong background in management of complex financial projects for government and non-profit organizations.  Among other positions, Mr. Levin has served as an internal auditor for the County of Santa Barbara, comptroller of the City of San Diego and as the manager of investments of a non-profit endowment.  The Board greatly appreciates Greg's accomplishments as Interim CEO over the last several months and enthusiastically looks forward to his contributions to SBCERS in the years to come.


The SBCERS Trust has experienced a solid recovery since the 2008-2009 market declines. This is due in part to the long-term strategy of the Fund which is established by the Retirement Board. The Fund reached a value in plan assets of $ 2.5 billion in August, 2014. The attached chart illustrates the value of the SBCERS Pension Fund over the past decade. No one can guaranty future performance; although the Fund’s past 10-year track record is commendable. SBCERS is confident in the Fund’s ability to provide for member’s benefits over the long term.
