HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwired – Nov 5, 2015) – Petro River Oil Corp. (
Mr. Brunner commented, “I am excited for the opportunity to step-in to a company that once had a great deal of promise. These have been challenging times for small domestic producers, but depressed commodity prices have also created opportunities to take advantage of if you have the staying power and know where to look. My goal is to re-position Petro River to best exploit these opportunities and allow us to add meaningful reserves that create shareholder value.”
According to Executive Chairman Scot Cohen, “We are confident that Mr. Brunner’s results driven perspective, proven leadership and ability to attract top-level talent, and track record of success navigating public companies in the past will benefit the Company and our shareholders as we position for future growth.” Scot Cohen will remain in his position as Executive Chairman.
