Olympus Energy LLC recently named Tim Dugan as president and CEO, succeeding M. Chris Doyle, who will now serve on the company’s board as lead director. Doyle had served as president and CEO of Olympus since 2016.
In addition to Dugan’s appointment, Olympus also promoted Michael Wahl to senior vice president and COO and Manny Johnson to vice president of operations.
Dugan joined Olympus in January 2020 as senior vice president and COO of the privately held independent natural gas company focused in the Appalachian Basin.
Previously, Dugan had worked for CNX Resources Corp., formerly Consol Energy, since 2004 and played a key role in the development of the company’s Marcellus and Utica shale assets. He had served as executive vice president and COO at CNX prior to his retirement from the company in July 2019.
Dugan’s career also includes previously serving as vice president of the Appalachia south business unit at Chesapeake Energy Corp. as well as working at EQT Corp. and Cabot Oil and Gas Corp.
In a statement commenting on the various promotions, Dugan said: “The spirit of the Olympus team is more vibrant than that of any company I’ve worked for throughout my nearly 30-year in this industry. I’m excited for us to take this next step together.”
The leadership changes took effect Sept. 30.
