Echo Production Team
Echo’s senior management team and Board of Directors represents expertise across all areas of a mid-tier oil and gas company.
Current market drivers and reduced global demand have adversely impacted production and pricing. Accordingly, Echo’s “Horizon” growth strategy required the company to recruit additional O&G talent, expand its internal controls and leverage capital to acquire new production opportunities.
This will allow Echo to be nimble to maintain its profitable posture and identify new M&A opportunities.
