Penn Virginia Corp. on Aug. 17 said its CEO, John A. Brooks, had retired from the Houston-based company, effective immediately.

Concurrent with Brooks’ retirement, Darrin J. Henke was appointed as president, CEO and director of Penn Virginia. Henke is an industry veteran with 30 years of experience in the oil and gas business including overseeing previously overseeing Encana Corp.’s entrance into the Eagle Ford and Permian Basins. 

Brooks, who had been with Penn Virginia for roughly 18 years, served in several management roles with the company before being promoted to president and CEO in August 2017. Prior to the promotion, he had served as interim principal executive officer following Penn Virginia’s emergence from bankruptcy in September 2016.
