Husky Energy CFO resigns to take up Cenovus role
- Business & Finance
Chief financial officer (CFO) of Canada’s oil and gas firm Husky Energy has resigned from his position, effective April 5.
Jonathan McKenzie, Husky Energy’s chief financial officer, decided to resign after only three years in the role.
Husky said on Thursday that it would announce a new CFO in due course. In the meantime, the company’s controller, Jeff Hart, has been appointed as the acting CFO.
Hart has worked for Husky for eight years in several senior financial roles. Before joining Husky, he worked for Statoil, Imperial Oil, and Deloitte.
Before Husky, McKenzie worked at Irving Oil in the roles of CFO and CCO, where he was responsible for all supply, trading and commercial aspects for the company including coordinating business development projects involving pipelines, rail, and terminal operations.
McKenzie also worked for ten years at Suncor Energy where he held increasingly senior roles in finance and operations.
In a separate statement on Thursday, Cenovus, a Canadian integrated oil and natural gas company, revealed that McKenzie would be joining the company in the CFO role following the retirement of its current CFO, Ivor Ruste, on April 30.
“I’m excited to be joining the Cenovus team. It’s a company that has a great opportunity to deliver increasing value to shareholders,” said McKenzie.
