PITTSBURGH — Alpha Natural Resources Inc. president Kurt Kost plans to retire at the end of May, the company said, noting that he will be replaced by Paul Vining.

Vining will continue in his current role as chief commercial officer of the Bristol, Va.-based metallurgical coal miner, and will oversee sales and marketing, as well as mining operations. He will report to chief executive officer Kevin Crutchfield.

"Paul brings vast leadership experience in the global coal industry to this newly expanded role, and I firmly believe that combining our mining operations with our sales and marketing efforts at this time will create the most effective business model for Alpha and provide new opportunities for growth and synergy," Crutchfield said in a statement.
