[Church Pension Fund press release] At its June 2013 meeting, after due deliberation, the Church Pension Fund (CPF) Board of Trustees elected Kevin B. Lindahl to fill the vacancy left by the retirement from the board of trustee James E. Bayne.
Mr. Lindahl holds an MBA in Accounting and Finance from Regis University and a J.D. from the University of Denver. He currently serves as General Counsel of the Fire and Police Pension Association, an organization with a $4 billion investment portfolio that administers pension and disability programs for public safety officers throughout Colorado. His responsibilities include investment decision-making, legislative relations, compliance with federal tax and state laws, and the administration of benefits. He has negotiated social responsibility issues and has studied, advised and lectured regarding fiduciary responsibilities.
Active in his diocese and parish, he serves as a trustee of Colorado Episcopal Foundation and a volunteer director of youth programs at his local parish where he previously served as Finance Chair. He is a co-moderate of the Richard Hooker Forum in the Diocese of Colorado.
“Kevin will bring valuable relevant experience in pension administration, investments, and the law to the board’s deliberations,” said Bishop Wayne P. Wright, Chair of the CPF Board, adding, “It will be good o have someone from Province VI serving on the CPF Board.”
Mr. Bayne, who retired from the CPF Board in June, had served as a CPF Trustee since 1999. A former executive at Exxon-Mobil, he was very active in the Church at the parish, diocesan and national levels. During his long and invaluable tenure as a CPF Trustee, he served in a variety of leadership roles, including Chair of the Finance Committee, a member of the Retirement Programs, Diversity and Workplace Values and the CEO Selection Committees, and a director of Church Life Insurance Corporation.
“We thank Jim for his faithful service and will miss his wise counsel,” said Bishop Wright. “We wish him and his wife June every blessing for the future.”
