CALGARY, Alberta, March 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- High Arctic Energy Services Inc. ("High Arctic") announces the appointment of Mike Maguire as Chief Executive Officer effective immediately.  Mike Maguire was formerly the President of International for High Arctic.  The appointment of Mike follows his success in restructuring and leading the International business through growth in 2015 and the contraction of PNG activity in 2018, establishing benchmarks for safe, effective and profitable delivery of service to top shelf customers.

Michael Binnion, Executive Chairman of the Board commented, "With the turn down in business throughout the organization, the Board decided to consolidate our top end management for efficiency and cost reduction.  We want to reinforce our operational emphasis on our front-line workers who deliver our service and maintain our industry leading safety record.  The Board thanks Cam Bailey for his service over the last two years.  No one could have foreseen the disruptive market factors that have led to this global downturn.  We are committed to preserving our balance sheet while supporting our customers who are also going through difficult adjustments to the current crisis."

The Company has also appointed an Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, with Michael Binnion as Chairman.  The committee will be comprised of Michael Binnion, Dan Bordessa and Doug Strong.  The Company has implemented a 20% reduction in Board compensation effective April 1, 2020.
