)-- Mr. Kinnear (61), a household name in the commodities trading industry has spent the last fifteen years working for Sinclair Capital Management in various roles and positions but most notably as the company’s Vice President for Finance and Vice CFO. However, Sinclair Capital Management has now confirmed that Mr. Kinnear will be leaving the company at the end of the 2014.
Mr. David Howell, CEO and Head of Corporate Trade and Alliance at Sinclair Capital Management said that “We are all extremely grateful to Andrew for the contribution he has made to Sinclair Capital Management over the years and all the hard work and commitment he has put into making the company successful. I am with great belief that without the work Andrew has put into Sinclair Capital Management over the last fifteen years the company would not be where it stands today. A great many people in our company have benefited substantially from Andrew’s vast experience and knowledge and we are all very sad to see him leave. Everybody at Sinclair Capital Management wishes Andrew the best of luck and a very comfortable retirement.”
Mr. Kinnear wrote in a statement planned for the next shareholders meeting “It is of great sadness that I am officially announcing my plans for retirement at the end of this year. I have worked with Sinclair Capital Management since the company’s inception and it feels like a second home to me. However I feel now that the time is right for me to hang up my boots and make plans for my retirement from the world of commodities trading.”
“Over the years we have shared many experiences together, through good times and bad. In the long time I have spent in the commodities trading profession I can proudly say that working at Sinclair Capital Management has been the pinnacle of my career. Together we have built and developed Sinclair Capital Management from being a small brokerage firm and turned the company into something really special, a company with an outstanding group of highly professional traders and a global network of clients. I have made many great friends here at Sinclair Capital Management and I wish the company all the success and recognition it deserves. I personally wish to thank George May for his friendship and loyalty over the years and for initially allowing me the opportunity to be a part of this great team.”
Mr. Kinnear will officially retire from Sinclair Capital Management in December 2014 after fifteen years of service.
