Kleenair appoints former KPMG senior audit partner

David Pinkney will serve as board chairman of Kleenair

RENEWABLE ENERGY investment company Kleenair Systems has appointed former KPMG senior audit partner David Pinckney as independent non-executive chairman of the board.

Pinckney was with KPMG for 20 years, up to 1983, becoming senior audit partner for France and French-speaking Africa. He moved on to group finance director and joint managing director role at the Thornton Group and was appointed European finance director of Dresdner RCM Global Investors on the merger of the Thornton Group with Kleinwort Benson Investment Management and RCM.

After a stint as chief operating officer-Far East and vice chairman at AXA Investment Managers SA, he took retirement in December 2003.

Previous chairman Sarah Pozner said: “We are very fortunate in securing the services of David as Chairman. We believe his audit assurance and corporate governance skills and general business experience will be particularly useful to us.

“His contacts as a director of an investment company specialising in wind power are directly relevant to the Company’s commitment to developing a sustainable energy business.”
