Chris Peracchi has been appointed vice-president and acting chief financial officer of EXCO Resources Inc., Dallas, effective Aug. 22. He previously served as the firm's vice-president of finance and investor relations, and treasurer.
The move follows the departure of Richard A. Burnett, EXCO’s former vice-president and chief financial officer. Burnett, who joined the firm in 2013, delivered his letter of resignation to pursue another opportunity.
In turn, Tyler Farquharson, EXCO’s current senior director of finance, becomes vice-president of strategic planning and assumes the investor relations role.
Peracchi became EXCO’s treasurer and director of finance and investor relations in May 2013 and its vice-president of finance and investor relations in September 2014. Before joining EXCO, he served as the associate director of corporate development and investor relations at Nabors Industries from April 2012 to April 2013, and director of finance and investor relations at Superior Well Services from March 2009 to April 2012.
