Callon Petroleum Co. appointed Kevin Haggard as senior vice president and CFO, the Houston-based company said in a May 10 release.
Haggard will join Callon Petroleum with more than 20 years of leadership experience across energy and finance, including most recently at Noble Energy which was acquired last year by Chevron Corp. He succeeds James “Jim” Ulm, II, the company’s former CFO who previously announced his intentions to retire.
“Kevin’s expertise as a seasoned financial leader with deep experience in both the upstream sector and in investment banking will serve us well as we continue working towards our deleveraging goals,” Joe Gatto, president and CEO of Callon Petroleum, said in a statement on May 10. “He has a track record of taking strategic action and building impactful teams and relationships across organizations.”
Haggard joined Noble Energy in 2016. He most recently served as its vice president and treasurer, where he responsible for the company’s global corporate finance and treasury operations and maintained relationships with Noble’s key capital providers.
Prior to joining Noble Energy, Haggard had served as vice president of finance and treasurer of Trinity River Energy and in the same position at HighMount Exploration & Production. Before those roles, he served as CFO of SunCap Financial and as an investment banker with Credit Suisse.
“I am excited to join Joe and the rest of the Callon team as the company continues to drive alignment with shareholders in the upstream sector by prioritizing debt reduction, free cash flow generation, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions,” Haggard said in a statement.
“I was also drawn to—and look forward to advancing—Callon’s foundational values, which have enabled the Company to foster positive engagement with its shareholders and other important stakeholders,” he added.
Callon’s previous CFO, Ulm, will remain with the company in a consulting position following his retirement later in May for an interim period to ensure a smooth transition, according to the company release.
With positions in the Permian and Eagle Ford shale basins, Callon Petroleum is an independent oil and natural gas company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of oil assets in South and West Texas.
