Arch Coal names new directors as it emerges from Chapter 11 protection
"We look forward to welcoming a new board of independent directors with the right mix of experience and business acumen to help guide Arch in a rapidly evolving and highly dynamic market environment," Arch CEO John Eaves said. "These directors bring proven track records and diverse perspectives from both inside and outside our industry. I am confident that their leadership will contribute to Arch's future success.”
The proposed board members include: Patrick Bartels Jr., James Chapman, Sherman Edmiston III, Patrick Kriegshauser, Richard Navarre and Scott Vogel. The board members will take over following confirmation of the plan in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
“I look forward to working with the new board to create value, to achieve operational excellence, to maintain our leadership in mine safety and environmental stewardship, and to serve the needs of our customers in the metallurgical and power-generation industries."
