Contura Energy, Inc. has announced upcoming changes to its executive leadership team as approved by Contura's board of directors on 6 November 2019.

On 15 November 2019, Kevin Stanley, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, and Scott Kreutzer, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, will leave their positions at the company.

Effective 1 December 2019, Mark Manno, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative and Legal Officer and Secretary, Suzan Moore, Senior Vice President – Administration and Chief Human Resources Officer, and Jill Harrison, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, will also leave their positions at the company.

"Contura recognises and appreciates the collective contributions of these departing senior leaders as they have served well the company and its predecessor organisations for many years," said chairman and chief executive officer, David Stetson. "As we move the organisation forward, it is necessary to capitalise on efficiencies by streamlining and downsizing the executive leadership team, and I am confident that our new framework will better position Contura for the years ahead."

On 6 November 2019, Contura's Board of Directors also approved the appointment of Roger Nicholson as executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, joining the company effective 2 December 2019. Nicholson brings over 30 years of legal experience to the organisation, including having served as general counsel for two publicly traded coal companies, International Coal Group, Inc. and Massey Energy Company.

Stetson praised Nicholson's deep experience in the energy industry. "Roger Nicholson's background is a perfect fit for the current needs of our company and the strategic vision for Contura's future," Stetson said. "I look forward to welcoming him to our ranks and bringing his vast breadth of experience to work on our behalf."
