LTN Group LLC, based in San Leandro, CA, was founded in April 2016 by Clifton Linton, a veteran business journalist.
After he left his previous job in November 2015, and cleared a few personal items off his desk, he gave serious consideration to what would be his next step in life. With a life-long interest in transportation, he looked for a way to combine that interest with his background as a market reporter. He decided to provide information on the market niche of trading transportation of commodities, specifically LPG by rail.
In his more than 30-years of experience, he has covered commodities and petroleum markets for a total of 21 years. He is an award-winning journalist – winning spot-news reporting awards in 2009 and 2012 from the Specialized Information Publishing Association, while working at Oil Price Information Service. At mPower Inc., he was part of an editorial team that won a Forbes’ “Best of the Web” award in 2001.
He has had articles published in the Wall Street Journal and Barron’s. He has worked on staff for Investor’s Business Daily, Dow Jones Newswires and Oil Price Information Service.
