Jim Saunders, as Chief Executive Officer, will continue to be fully involved on a daily basis, providing leadership and direction in the affairs of the Company.
Mr. Hall joined Twin Butte as Vice President, Corporate Development in 2009 and has taken on increasing responsibility over time, leading to his promotion as COO in 2011.

Adding the President's responsibilities to his current role as COO recognizes Mr. Hall's increasing contribution and is a natural progression of Twin Butte's long-term succession planning.
