Secretary Announces Executive Staff Changes

MADISON -- Department of Employee Trust Funds (DETF) Secretary Eric Stanchfield announced that Executive Assistant Dave Hinrichs is leaving the Department to take a position with the Division of Enterprise Technology, where he will serve as assistant to the Administrator, Matt Miszewski. Hinrichs, of McFarland, has been executive assistant/administrator of Information Technology at DETF for 16 years.

Secretary Stanchfield also announced the appointment of David A. Stella, executive director/chief executive officer of the Denver Public Schools Retirement System, as DETF executive assistant. Stella was administrator of DETF's Division of Retirement Services from 1995 to the end of 2001, when he left to take the post in Denver. Recent legislation in Colorado will result in a merger of the Denver Public Schools Retirement System with the larger Colorado Public Employee Retirement System effective January 2005. Stella will assume his duties at DETF on or before December 1.

In addition, Secretary Stanchfield appointed longtime DETF Budget and Policy Manager Joanne Cullen interim information technology administrator, effective immediately.
