CVR Partners Executive Vice President Kevan Vick Retires

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CVR Partners, LP (NYSE: UAN), a master limited partnership and manufacturer of ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) solution fertilizer products, announced today that Kevan A. Vick, executive vice president and fertilizer general manager for the general partner of CVR Partners, LP and CVR Energy, has elected to retire after more than 35 years in the fertilizer industry.


Vick will continue to serve as an executive consultant to the company for up to two years.  His day-to-day responsibilities will be assigned to other members of the company's recently expanded executive team.

" Kevan Vick is one of the most highly respected executives in the nitrogen fertilizer business, known for both his technical expertise and his in-depth knowledge of the commercial marketplace," said CVR Partners Chief Executive Officer Byron Kelley.  "We wish him well in his retirement, and we are pleased we will continue to have access to his industry insights through his new role as a consultant to the company."

Vick holds a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas and is a licensed professional engineer in Kansas, Oklahoma and Iowa.
