The Company is also pleased to announce that it has appointed Gerrie van der Westhuizen to CFO and Corporate Secretary of the Company effective January 1, 2023. For the past two years Mr. Van der Westhuizen has been serving exceptionally as the VP Finance and Assistant Corporate Secretary, managing the finance function for the Company in respect of strategic financial analysis and planning, treasury & debt management, budgeting, financial reporting, and business processes & related controls. Mr. Chris Batalha, who has been the CFO and Corporate Secretary since the inception of the Company in 2019, has provided his notice of resignation from the Company effective December 31, 2022, for personal reasons. Mr. Batalha will continue to work with the Company for a period of transition into the new year, after which he will retain an advisory role with the Company.
Steven Dean, Chairman and CEO commented: “I am very excited to announce the appointment of Jeremy Langford to President, in addition to his existing role of COO of Artemis. Jeremy has held very senior roles with large producers in the industry. He has led with innovation and experience, progressing Blackwater with outstanding capital management skills and has put together a team second to none in development and operating in our sector. I’m also pleased to announce Gerrie’s promotion to CFO and Corporate Secretary. Mr. Van der Westhuizen has been a leader on some of our significant strategic initiatives since joining the Company and I am confident that he will serve the Company well as an executive officer of the Company.
I have had the pleasure to work with Mr. Batalha for many years and his contribution both corporately and personally as a colleague will be sorely missed. Chris has been an exceptional individual in all facets of his role with us. I wish him well and thank him for his continuing efforts in the transition to Gerrie and for his advisory role going forward.”
