OP&F Names Foley Executive Director


Mary Beth Foley

Mary Beth Foley was named the eighth executive director of the Ohio Police & Fire Pension Fund, Board Chair Stephen Corvi announced on Tuesday, June 29. She has been serving as interim Executive Director since April. Foley has been the system’s General Counsel since 2008, providing policy, legal, and legislative guidance to board members and staff.

The Board of Trustees conducted a national search before appointing Foley. “Mary Beth Foley has dedicated most of her career to supporting public safety and first responders and she knows this pension system better than anyone,” Board Chair Stephen Corvi said.

Corvi pointed to Foley’s national leadership in the field as current president of the National Association of Public Pension Attorneys. “Public pension experts across the country look to Mary Beth on pension issues. We’ve got one of the best,” Corvi concluded.

Prior to joining the system in 2008, Foley served as the Deputy Chief Legal Counsel for the Ohio Auditor of State’s office, where she was the Auditor of State’s fiduciary counsel and designee to Ohio’s pension systems, developing an expertise in the complex policy and legal issues facing public pensions.

Foley was also an Assistant Ohio Attorney General and Chief Labor Counsel, serving two state Attorneys General. She built significant expertise and a statewide reputation in labor law, collective bargaining, and employment law issues. An Ohio native, she was an Honors graduate of the University of Cincinnati and earned her Juris Doctor from Capital University School of Law.

“I’m honored and humbled to be selected to lead this important organization,” Foley said. “I am so proud of this Board, our members and the staff who work every day to improve the lives and secure the pensions of Ohio’s brave police and firefighters. I’ll give my all to see that crucial mission advanced effectively, ethically, and with urgency.”

Foley is a granddaughter of a firefighter who was among the first to receive a pension from OP&F.
