Now, as we advance to the next chapter of our company’s history, I am very confident that he is uniquely qualified to lead our company to great success.

After 21 years of service, I will be stepping away from our day-to-day management. During this time, we have achieved many significant value creation milestones thanks to the hard work of Frontera’s special people. Looking forward, I know that Zaza and our leadership team will take our Company to greater heights in the months and years ahead. Personally, having had the privilege to lead Frontera during the past two decades has been an honor and I am very proud of our people and their unwavering dedication to our Company, all of which has led to the successes that we have all achieved to date, positioning us now for a very exciting future.”
