Pfizer’s Kindler quits the Fed by Colin Barr @FortuneMagazine December 29, 2010, 10:02 PM EST E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons Former Pfizer pfe chief Jeffrey Kindler stepped down from the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Kindler, who quit the giant drugmaker in a surprise announcement three weeks ago, said Wednesday he’ll leave the Fed board tomorrow after just over a year as a director. Do I have the scoop? Kindler said in his resignation letter, dated last Thursday, that as a former CEO he no longer fills the Fed’s need for “current, high level information about the business environment.” His term ends in December 2012. The Fed is expected to hold a special election to appoint someone to serve out the rest of Kindler’s term early next year.
