OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 29, 2013-- Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK) today announced that its Board of Directors has established a three-person Office of the Chairman while continuing its previously announced CEO search process with the assistance of Heidrick & Struggles.

The Office of the Chairman includes: Archie W. Dunham, Non-Executive Chairman of the Board; Steven C.

Mr. Dixon has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer since 2006 and has held various senior operational positions since joining Chesapeake in 1991. Mr. Dell’Osso has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer since 2010 after serving in various financial roles since 2008.

As part of Chesapeake’s previously announced succession plan, the members of the Office of the Chairman have been working closely to transition oversight of strategic, operational, and financial matters as well as certain day-to-day management responsibilities from Chief Executive Officer Aubrey K. McClendon, who has previously agreed with the Board to retire on April 1, 2013.

Archie W. Dunham, Chairman of the Board, said, “Chesapeake continues to perform well and is successfully executing our strategy to increase liquids production, drive capital efficiencies across the business, and enhance financial flexibility to prudently fund growth. Steve and Nick are both playing key leadership roles as the company accelerates the realization of the substantial intrinsic value of our world-class oil and gas assets for the benefit of all Chesapeake stakeholders.”
