Greg Mennis directs Pew’s work on public sector retirement systems. The project provides cutting-edge research on pension and retiree health promises and helps states and cities undertake evidence-based pension and retiree health care reforms.
Before joining Pew, he was assistant secretary for fiscal policy in the Massachusetts Executive Office for Administration and Finance, where he was responsible for retirement benefits policy, long-term fiscal planning, and the state’s Pay for Success financing program. In that role, Mennis led the development of Massachusetts’ pension reform legislation and created the state’s first long-term fiscal policy framework. He also worked in corporate finance and strategy at Citigroup and J.P. Morgan and as the chief financial officer and executive vice president of corporate development for a market-leading provider of retirement services technology.
Mennis holds a bachelor’s degree in finance and public communications from Syracuse University and a master’s in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
