Northern Oil and Gas Inc. named CFO Nicholas O’Grady as president on Sept. 10, filling a position left vacant following the resignation of the Bakken nonop company’s founder, Michael Reger, last month.

O’Grady has nearly two decades of finance experience, which includes serving as CFO of Northern for roughly a year, according to a company release.

In the short time since O’Grady became Northern’s CFO, the company has completed more than $760 million worth of acquisitions. The transactions not only have helped crystalize Northern’s identity as the largest pure-play Williston nonoperator, but also furthered its goal of transitioning to a free cash flow model—something which Bahram Akradi, chairman of the Northern board, said O’Grady has championed.
