Australia-based Red Emperor Resources has appointed a new chief executive officer (CEO) from ExxonMobil.
Red Emperor said on Monday that Gracjan P. Lambert was named as the company’s new chief executive officer (CEO).
According to the company, Lambert brings with him a wealth of technical and commercial experience in the global oil and gas industry, built over more than 20 years working in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, North and South America, and Africa.
He spent the last 10 years at ExxonMobil in diverse roles including managing global field operations and leading complex international commercial negotiations.
Managing director, Greg Bandy, said: “We are delighted to have attracted someone with Gracjan’s expertise and experience to our management team. He will be a valuable addition to the company and will specifically focus on managing, reviewing and introducing projects and assets to the company.”
The company added that Lambert would not be a board member of Red Emperor.
Also, the company appointed Aaron Bertolatti to the board of directors. Bertolatti, currently Red Emperor’s company secretary, is a qualified chartered accountant with over ten years of experience in the mining industry and accounting profession.
He has both local and international experience and provides assistance to a number of resource companies with financial accounting and stock exchange compliance.
Bertolatti was previously the Australian CFO of Highfield Resources and acts as company secretary for listed ASX companies, Fin Resources, American Pacific Borate & Lithium, Arc Exploration, and Berkut Minerals Limited. He is also a director of Odin Metals Limited.
In addition to the two appointments, Nathan Rayner resigned from the board of Red Emperor, effective immediately, due to personal circumstances.
