Zimmerman, the former President and CEO of Storm Cat Energy holds a bachelor of science in petroleum engineering. Zimmerman has an extensive background in the oil and gas industry including working at Huber Corp. for 20 years where he was instrumental in the sale of Huber's Fruitland Coal CBM field for $100+ MM in profit. In 2002, he was Vice President of Operations and Engineering for Evergreen Resources and responsible for over 1,000+ producing wells and 800,000 prospective acres. Evergreen was acquired by Pioneer Resources for $2.1 billion in 2004. Zimmerman then founded Storm Cat Energy, which is currently traded on the American Stock Exchange and has approximately $140 million in assets.
Zeltwanger has been involved in the industry since 1973. He started in south Texas, and then later was involved in parts of the Austin Chalk and has been involved in several new Wilcox field discoveries in both Fayette and Lee counties in Texas. For the past six years he has been a partner in Leexus Oil and Gas, which recently sold its assets to South Texas Oil Co. for approximately $26 million.

It is a pleasure to welcome them to the executive team and I have every confidence they will both be instrumental in our continued growth and success."
