John serves as our Treasurer, and CFO. He came out of retirement to join Cardinal citing his enthusiasm about building another Oil and Gas Company with a management team he respects and knows will be successful. He oversees all accounting and financial matters. Since 1970 through 2006 he had been engaged in the production of gas and oil with the Unocal Corporation and its successor Chevron Corporation. During his oil and gas career he was involved in various assignments of increasing responsibility within the Unocal comptroller department.

He performed management and transitional accounting for the transition from Unocal’s corporate headquarters, from the date of acquisition by Chevron through the final integration with Chevron’s accounting and internal controls systems. He provided the governance over the reporting and valuation of proved oil and gas reserves for the former Unocal properties in keeping with SEC rules and best practices of both firms. During the pre and post-acquisition of Unocal by Chevron he managed the preparation of SEC periodic filings and registration statements: jointly with the company’s law, communications and investor relations departments, where he reviewed and issued Annual and Quarterly reports, press releases and other disclosures to the public.
