Dorchester Minerals appointed Bradley J. Ehrman CEO effective Oct. 1, 2022, a company press release announced on Sept. 22.

Current CEO William Casey McManemin will be stepping down from his role of CEO at the company that same date but will continue to serve as chairman of the board of managers and support the company's key hires, M&A program and employee culture and engagement.

McManemin served as CEO of Dorchester since its formation in 2001, where he oversaw consistent business growth despite encountering occasional negative economic periods throughout his tenure.

His efforts poised the company to continue the execution of its value creation plans for its unitholders.
