Alberta Investment Management Corp. has named the former head of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. as its next chief executive.

The investment manager says Evan Siddall will officially start the job on July 1.

He will succeed Kevin Uebelein, who has been AIMCo’s CEO since since Jan. 1, 2015.

AIMCo has more than $118 billion in assets under management and invests on behalf of 31 pension, endowment and government funds in Alberta.

Siddall stepped down as CEO of CMHC earlier this month after serving in the role since 2014.

Before joining the national housing agency, Siddall was a special advisor to the governor of the Bank of Canada and spent 20 years with investment banking firms in Toronto and New York.
