CALGARY — Global Helium Corp., a Canadian helium exploration and development company, announces the appointment of Mr. Jesse Griffith to the board of directors. Mr. Griffith will immediately begin transitioning into the role of President and will be active in all day-to-day operational aspects of the Company. Additionally, Mr. Griffith is making a $500,000 strategic investment into the Company.
Mr. Griffith was previously the founder and Vice President of Crestwynd Exploration Ltd., which was recently acquired for more than $200 million by a major publicly listed company. The majority of Mr. Griffith’s career to date has involved starting and growing businesses through M&A, land acquisition, exploration and execution.
Mr. Griffith has experience in the oil and gas industry in the capacity of founder, executive management, business development, exploration, operations, land management, legal responsibilities, asset evaluation and corporate evaluation. He has been involved in the early-stage growth and development of several upstream oil and gas companies in Canada and the United States.
Wes Siemens, current President of Global, will continue to work hand-in-hand with Mr. Griffith and will remain active with the Company for the long term as a director and trusted technical advisor to the Company.
Mr. Siemens stated, “Jesse’s appointment could not have come at a more exciting time for Global. As we enter the United States through strategic acquisitions and start planning a significant drilling program in North America, we intend to make Global a helium production Company in the near future. As a significant shareholder of Global, I am excited to have recruited an aggressive, experienced operator in Jesse to help lead the Global team. As he transitions into the role, I will continue to actively fulfil a technical and operational function, where needed. Adding Jesse to the team is a big win for Global shareholders, who should expect significant and expedient progress.”
