I worked many years at the executive level of a oil and gas company. You can't fire a board member, but I have seen some leave when they aren't being heard and can see what is to come. They want no part of it.
The CEO is so over his head is would be funny if people weren't losing jobs and money. The Board isn't much better. After all they put him in that position and have left him there after very obvious actions or non-actions have shown how incompetent he is. Don't think there is much upside to this company. Truly sad. It was a great company and I owned a large amount of stock. Obviously, I got rid of that quite a while ago.
You have no idea what you are talking about. When Mr. Chronister was temporary CEO was the last time the company and the stock was doing anything positive. I would imagine he just had enough of the stupidity of this BOD. They continue to leave Rich Carty in as CEO and he will be the end of this company.
