Kyle Mork Named ECA's New Chief Executive Officer
(Charleston, W.Va.) – Officials with Energy Corporation of America (ECA) today announced that Kyle Mork has been named the energy producer’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mork succeeds his father John Mork, the company’s founder.
Chief Financial Officer and Board Member Mike Forbes said, “Throughout his tenure, Kyle spearheaded modern innovation at ECA and navigated the company’s transition from a shallow well conventional operator to an adept, unconventional developer. He launched horizontal drilling at ECA and guided expansions and improvements of the practice over the last decade – making the company one of the best horizontal shale developers in the world. And, he is gracefully and successfully guiding the company through one of the most difficult times in history for the energy industry. The board of directors has the utmost confidence in his ability to continue leading the company and fully support his vision for the future of ECA.”
In this role, Mork will be responsible for the day-to-day management and direction of all areas of the company.
Mork joined ECA in 2004 as a drilling engineer and since that time has worked his way up through the organization, serving as vice president, senior vice president, chief operating officer, and most recently, president.
“I am honored and gratified that the Board of Directors is entrusting me with tremendous responsibility,” Mork said. “I am proud to be continuing my family legacy as stalwarts in the energy industry and I am very excited to be ushering in the next chapter for ECA!”
ECA is a privately-held, family-operated, oil and natural gas company with more than a million acres throughout Appalachia. Headquartered in Charleston, W.Va., the company has about 200 employees and several offices throughout West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
