Ultra Petroleum Corp. (NASDAQ: UPL) said March 7 that Brad Johnson will officially assume the company’s top position after filling in as interim CEO for roughly a year.

The Rockies oil and gas producer, which has recruited a new senior management team within the past year, also reported quarterly results largely in line with analyst expectations but with higher spending.

Johnson has over 24 years of industry experience including operations, engineering, acquisitions, project management and corporate planning and previously worked for Anadarko Petroleum Corp. for 13 years before joining Ultra in 2008.
