According to a relevant fact disclosed to the market, Mr. Lincoln Rumenos Guardado informed his departure from the position of Company’s CEO and Décio Oddone took the command as of Monday (21).
Lincoln joined the Company in 2009 as Exploration Manager and took office as CEO in 2012. His management has marked by significant achievements, such as the successful operation of the Atlanta Field in the Santos Basin. His leadership was paramount for the Company’s entry into the pre-salt.
“These years working for Enauta were the high point of my 40-year career in the oil and gas market in Brazil and internationally. I am very proud of having contributed to the achievements since its inception as a publicly-held company, building value for all stakeholders, and relying on a team of exceptional professionals who are committed to the Company’s next steps towards the future”, affirmed Mr. Guardado.
The Chairman of our Board of Directors, Mr. Antônio Augusto de Queiroz Galvão, added, “Lincoln’s career
was admirable throughout his entire professional life, and he undoubtedly contributed to Enauta’s growth. On behalf of the Board, I am immensely grateful to Lincoln for all his dedication. He is leaving a legacy of efficiency and financial strength at the Company”.
Décio Oddone is the new Chief Executive Officer
To replace the CEO’s position, Mr. Décio Oddone, an engineer with more than 35 years of experience, arrives at Enauta with ample professional baggage, passing through leadership positions in public and private companies. Oddone assumes in a favorable moment for the company, which continues in a rhythm of growth, considering its good capitalization, progress in the Atlanta Field and positive expectations for the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin. The executive, more recently, stood out in the market for his leadership as General Director of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP). He also worked for many years in leadership positions at Petrobras, in Brazil and abroad.
“Taking the helm of Enauta, after Lincoln Guardado’s leadership, is indeed a great challenge. Enauta has consolidated its position as a significant player in Brazil’s oil and gas sector. I expect to contribute to the Company’s growth, endorsing the legacy of my predecessors while broadening business horizons”, affirms Oddone.
Lincoln continues at Enauta until December this year, supporting the transition.
