Veteran dealmaker Steve W. Herod was recently named head of Grizzly Energy LLC, marking reemergence following his resignation last year from Halcón Resources, a company he had co-founded alongside legendary wildcatter Floyd Wilson.
Grizzly, formerly Vanguard Natural Resources, appointed Herod as CEO, effective Feb. 3, according to a company news release. Herod succeeds Jonathan C. Curth, who had been serving as interim president and CEO since Grizzly’s former CEO, R. Scott Sloan, stepped down in September. Sloan had agreed to provide limited transitional advisory services to the company through March 31.
“Steve brings a diverse skill set of oil and gas leadership and transactional experience to the company,” said Grizzly board chairman Patrick J. Bartels Jr. in a statement welcoming Herod to the company’s management team.
