Kingdon Cans Investor Relations Chief

Oct 25 2010 | 2:06am ET

Hedge fund Kingdon Capital Management has abruptly fired its head of investor relations.

"I'm very sad and disappointed and shocked that they decided to do this," Marjorie Kaufman told Pensions & Investments. "They let me go without notice and without cause."

Kaufman has worked at Kingdon, which has $4.9 billion in assets under management, since 2007. In a letter to investors, the New York-based firm said that Alan Winters, its chief operating officer, would take over as interim head of investor relations.
