Other positions held by Hanna include president and CEO of Admiral Energy Services, senior VP at Tetra Technologies, president and CEO of Tetra’s affiliate Maritech Resources, president of another Tetra affiliate, Tetra Applied Technologies, president and CEO of Gulfport Energy, COO of for DLB Oil & Gas, and president and CEO of Hanna Oil Properties.
Douglas E. Brooks, Energy XXI’s CEO and president, said: “[…] we welcome Gary to EGC following a robust process led by our Nomination and Governance Committee to identify a new leader for our board.
“His extensive senior executive and board experience at exploration and production companies operating both offshore and onshore, as well as with the plugging and abandonment sector of the oilfield services industry will be particularly valuable to us. This experience will be welcome as we pursue our strategy recently implemented with the beginning of our 2018 drilling program.”
Michael Reddin, Energy XXI’s former chairman of the board, will remain on the board until the upcoming annual meeting of stockholders. Reddin decided to not stand for re-election following the end of this term.
“Mike Reddin served a key role after EGC emerged from restructuring. We would like to thank Mike for the dedication, commitment and contributions he has made to the company not only with his board leadership but also serving as interim CEO last year,” added Brooks.
