Cardinal Energy Group Inc. (OTCQB: CEGX) appointed John Jordan as chief financial officer, the company said Jan. 13. Jordan replaces Daniel Troendly, who resigned due to health reasons, the company added.

"On behalf of our board and management team, I would like to thank Daniel for his service and contributions over the past several years. We welcome John to the position and are very pleased to have someone of his caliber and financial skill set serve as our CFO. We believe John's experience will be instrumental as we continue to target fields throughout the U.S. with significant, proven reserves that provide growth opportunities through new drilling programs," said Timothy Crawford, CEO.

Jordan has worked in accounting and financial services for oil, gas and geothermal companies for more than 40 years, the company said. Prior to joining Cardinal, he spent more than 36 years with Unocal Corp., later Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX), in the Comptroller’s department. He was manager of transition accounting, and handled Unocal’s accounts through their final integration with Chevron’s accounting and internal control systems, Cardinal added.

He holds a BS in Accounting and Business Management and an MA in Business Administration, both from Pepperdine University.

Cardinal Energy produces domestic oil and natural gas and is based in Dublin, Ohio.
