“Private equity is an essential part of our investment mix, and I’m excited to add Michael to our team,” PRIM executive director and chief investment officer Michael G. Trotsky, said in a statement. “Michael brings superb experience and a sharp mind to overseeing the category. His unique skill set is built from years of work in private equity as an investment banker, at a large pension and with an elite endowment investment manager.”
