Brent Bilsland will remain Hallador Energy's President, CEO and Director.


"These are not big changes in our company's organisation as both Mr. Martin and Ms. Tryon have been instrumental in our company's growth and success for several years.  They both have earned these promotions, and our company is better because they choose to be a part of our organisation," said Brent Bilsland, President and CEO of Hallador Energy. "I am confident that they will thrive as they take their new leadership roles."
