Citadel Investment Group’s former head of European energy trading has retired from Goldman Sachs.

Karl Robijns was most recently head of oil and agricultural trading at Goldman. He returned to the bank in 2007, after a two-year stint at Citadel.

Robijns first joined Goldman in 1998, and was named to his most recent post last year.

“Karl has had a substantial commercial impact on our market-leading commodities franchise,” Isabelle Ealet, Ashok Varadhan and Pablo Salame, Goldman’s co-heads of securities, said.
