Among the big names to make an exit in 2016 was Bruce Zimmerman, longtime CEO of The University of Texas Investment Management Company (UTIMCO).

Bruce Zimmerman, CEO and chief investment officer at University of Texas Investment Management Company (UTIMCO), departed after 9 years in office.
Mr. Zimmerman's departure was uncommonly sudden. A press release on October 10 announced a resignation effective that same day, which is not how things are usually done.
Per his separation agreement, he got a total of about $1.3 million in severance payments, and that was that.
Writing in UT's hometown paper, the Austin Statesman, reporter Ralph Haurwitz asked Mr. Zimmerman the delicate but unavoidable question: whether he decided to resign or was nudged?
Mr. Zimmerman responded: "I would say it's mutual. I've been thinking about it for a year or two.
In our review of the big Public Ivy endowments two years ago, Mr. Zimmerman got a very honorable mention.
And, Mr. Zimmerman told a reporter: "...It is not surprising that UT's returns have been a bit lower than the other endowments.
This out-performance is significant and persistent and something Mr. Zimmerman frequently alludes to.
Shifting goalposts
By 2016 there were a lot of new faces on the UTIMCO board.
There had been a 100 percent turnover since Mr. Zimmerman was hired in 2007, and six new members just in 2014-2015, most conspicuously Regents Vice President Jeffery Hildebrand and Mr. McRaven, who were chairman and vice-chairman, respectively.
We surmise that the new crew had re-evaluated the long-standing risk-return regime under which Mr. Zimmerman had been working.
As of February 2016, eight months before Mr. Zimmerman's departure, oil prices had plummeted, with West Texas Intermediate trading at less than $27 a barrel, down more than 70% from its 2014 high.
That permitted Mr. Zimmerman to take a rare two-week vacation in September with Mr. Warner in charge.

Are College Endowments Turning To Gold? - College Made Simple [cached]

Bruce Zimmerman, UTIMCO's chief executive officer, described the gold investment as a "hedge," which would protect the portfolio if a "lack of monetary and fiscal discipline on the part of governments" drives down the value of other assets. While not naming names, Zimmerman said he knew of several other endowment managers adopting the same strategy.

"I don't believe we're the only endowment [doing this]," he said.
