SamCERA’s New CEO

Scott Hood has been named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the San Mateo County Employees’ Retirement Association (SamCERA), effective Nov. 9, 2014. He succeeds David Bailey, who will retire in early 2015.

Since 2002, Hood served as SamCERA’s Assistant Executive Officer (AEO), managing the benefits, finance, information technology, communications and administrative staff of the association. Prior to becoming AEO, he served as SamCERA’s Information Technology Manager for two years.

Hood holds a BS in Engineering from the US Military Academy and an MS in Computer Information Systems from Boston University. Last year, he completed his military career as a Colonel in the US Army Reserve after serving over 30 years of combined active and reserve service. His military career includes deployments to Bosnia, Iraq and Djibouti where he served in various leadership roles with multi-national teams working on elections, media relations and operations planning.

A nationwide recruitment for SamCERA’s new CEO concluded in September when the Retirement Board chose Hood by unanimous vote.
