Frontera Energy Corp. has appointed René Burgos Díaz as chief financial officer, effective June 3, succeeding Alejandro Piñeros, who stepped down from the position effective the same day to pursue other career opportunities.
Burgos, who previously served as a company director, resigned from the board immediately prior to his appointment as chief financial officer, and stepped down as a member of both the audit committee and the compensation and human resources committee.
Burgos holds over 20 years of experience in investment management, leveraged financing, restructuring and financial advisory expertise across multiple industries and geographies, specifically Latin America. Most recently, he served as the Head of Private Credit for Latin America and Portfolio Manager for the Latin America Private Credit Opportunities fund (LAPCO) for Compass Group.
Board member Luis Fernando Alarcón has replaced Burgos on the audit committee and board member Veronique Giry replaced Burgos on the compensation and human resources committee.
Piñeros joined Frontera in 2017 and became chief financial officer in 2020 following the resignation of David Dyck (OGJ Online, Mar. 23, 2020).
