Profile of KAR COO Jeannine Vanian in the Los Angeles Times
August 29, 2018
The LA Times details the story of Jeannine Vanian in an article titled “Determination born of childhood hardship pushed a temp worker to chief operating officer of a top investment firm”

From her early days in Ethiopia and as a university student in Cairo, Jeannine Vanian developed and exhibited strong work ethic and drive as an independent woman. Her stint with Allan Rudnick led to her involvement in Kayne Anderson Rudnick when he and two others founded the firm in 1984. Since then Vanian has taken on various responsibilities within the company, becoming chief operating officer in 2005. Her key advice in leadership is to have “an open-minded attitude” and to be “willing to listen to other viewpoints before you jump to conclusions.”
