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."

Prior to the initial public offering of CVR Energy in 2007, Vick was named senior vice president of Coffeyville Resources Nitrogen Fertilizers, LLC, upon its founding in 2004.  Before joining Coffeyville Resources, he was general manager of nitrogen manufacturing for Farmland Industries, the previous owner of our nitrogen fertilizer business.  He also had served on the board of directors of Farmland MissChem Limited in Trinidad and SF Phosphates.

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.
