Dejour's Rebrand Reflects New Appointments, Operational Success
Dejour has launched a new brand identity and website designed to reflect more accurately the company's evolution to production operations.
The launch of the rebrand is timed to coincide with four important milestones:
1. The appointment of Mr. Harrison Blacker as President & COO of Dejour Enterprises Ltd. Mr. Blacker joined Dejour USA in early 2008, and in his new position as President and COO of the corporation will be assuming responsibility for setting corporate strategy and corporate asset management, working with existing management and technical teams both in the United States and Canada. Prior to Dejour, Mr. Blacker held executive positions managing oil and gas operations with E&P corporations in the United States, South America, China and the Middle East. Mr. Blacker will continue to lead the Denver team, reside near and work in Dejour’s Denver offices.
2. The appointment of Neyeska Mut as Executive Vice President for Operations of Dejour Energy, USA. Mrs. Mut brings to Dejour experience gained during a 30 year career in the energy industry in the US, Canada, Venezuela, Indonesia and the United Kingdom. Since 2000, she has been President of Nycon Energy Consulting working as an advisor to two major oil companies on the development of unconventional oil resources. Prior to forming Nycon Energy Consulting Mrs. Mut pursued international opportunities in both managerial and executive positions with Atlantic Richfield, ARCO.
3. Dejour reaching a production threshold of 1,000 barrels of oil equivalent daily (BOE) targeted exit rate for 2008. Entering 2009, this clearly marks the completion of Dejour's transformation into a production company, whereas the company began 2008 primarily as an exploration firm.
4. The listing of Dejour's common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in Canada. This is a symbolic upgrade from the ‘Venture’ exchange dominated by junior exploration companies. Dejour also now trades on the NYSE Alternext Exchange, following a merger with the AMEX. The company is presented on both exchanges with the DEJ symbol, a stylized version of which was developed as the company's new logo.
Along with the logo, a new tagline conveys Dejour's entrepreneurial approach: "'Energy. Independence.' clearly reflects the United States' continuing focus on domestic energy production, but it also captures our company's focus on sound, independent thinking and on well-timed investments and transactions," explained Chairman and CEO Robert L. Hodgkinson. "We've never been a typical E&P company, nor do we plan to be typical moving forward."
Dejour's newly designed website has also been launched at Dejour.com.
