Bruce Burrows joins Lekoil as finance head

Lekoil, a West Africa-focussed oil and gas explorer, has appointed Bruce Burrows as CFO, effective 27 February.

Samuel Adegboyega (pictured), company chairman, says Lekoil is "delighted" to welcome Bruce into the fold.

He said:

"His experience working in Nigeria, his knowledge of the investment and banking communities and his experience at a producing company will be invaluable to us as we embark on the next chapter in Lekoil's development."

Burrows, a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia & New Zealand, has much experience in the oil and gas industry. He was previously CFO at Seven Energy, a Nigerian gas company, and prior to this, was finance director of London-listed explorer JKX Oil & Gas, a position he held for 14 years.
