    Richard Green, president and CEO of Saxon Oil Co. Ltd. has retired his positions as well as his seat on the company’s board of directors. He will be retained by the company as a technical consultant through December 31, 2010 and will continue to advise Saxon on technical aspects of the company's existing projects.

    Steven D. Saxon, chairman of Saxon will serve as interim president and CEO and Melissa L. Long will serve as the interim CFO. The board has begun its search for a new president and CEO and will look at restructuring the board.
