Goff replaces Joe Romano, who will remain on the Board as a director.

“We thank Joe for his years of service as Chairman of the Board and look forward to his continued contribution as a director of the company,” said Goff. “We are excited about our recent announcements of the pending acquisitions of Will Energy and White Star, which are truly transformative transactions for Contango. We are committed to our strategy of continuing to consolidate the fragmented E&P space during this unique window of opportunity. Wilkie Colyer has worked with me for the last 12 years and I look forward to supporting him and the dedicated Contango team.”

Contango also announced today that it has enhanced its management team through the appointment of Farley Dakan as its senior vice president – Corporate Development. In his new role at Contango, Dakan will report to Wilkie S. Colyer, Contango’s president & CEO, and will be responsible for the integration of the company’s recent acquisitions, as well as the identification, evaluation, financing and integration of future acquisitions as part of the company’s consolidation strategy.

Dakan has extensive experience in management, advisory and board roles with both private and public companies in a number of different industries. Immediately prior to joining Contango, Dakan was founder, owner and CEO of Will Energy Corporation, which recently entered into a Contribution and Purchase Agreement for the sale of its oil and gas asset portfolio to Contango. Prior to founding Will Energy Corporation, Dakan’s advisory and management roles were in support of clients such as Wells Fargo, Fortress Investment Group, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and numerous other investment firms and corporations. Dakan began his career with a predecessor firm of Ernst & Young and graduated with a degree in finance from Baylor University.
