Glori Energy Inc., an energy technology and oil production company, has announced the appointment Kevin P. Guilbeau as Executive Chairman of the Board. Guilbeau succeeds interim Chairman Mark Puckett, who remains on the Board. In addition to the traditional duties of Chairman, as Executive Chairman, Mr. Guilbeau will work directly with the Company's management team to help further advance Glori's growth and strategic initiatives.
Stuart Page, Glori's President and CEO, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Kevin to our Board. Kevin brings a wealth of E&P experience and relationships in both the energy industry and the capital markets that will be invaluable as we ramp up our efforts to acquire long lived, mature oil production assets and deploy our AERO technology. He will not only provide a strong bridge between our Board and executive team, but we believe his counsel will also help us accelerate our acquisition strategy to take advantage of the current commodity market conditions."
