Canbriam Energy announced the retirements of two of its founding members, CEO Gary Gardiner and Chief Technology Officer, John Nieto.
In addition, Chief Financial Officer Rob Froese and the VP of Drilling & Completions, Art Flaws, are retiring.
“The contributions made by John, Gary, Rob and Art during their careers with Canbriam have been significant” said Paul Myers, Canbriam’s president and CEO. “Their thoughtful leadership and hard work helped establish the foundation of Canbriam’s organic development. On behalf of the entire organization, I thank them for all they have done to make Canbriam a low cost liquids-rich natural gas producer and a great place to work.”
The retirements were effective January 7 as part of the planned transition in leadership at Canbriam. Each individual has agreed to consult as needed through the first quarter of 2019 to ensure a seamless transition.
