Matheson appointed Dejour Energy CFO

Dejour Energy Inc.

Dejour Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: DEJ / TSX: DEJ), an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America's Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, has named David Matheson as CFO, effective February 1, 2013.

Matheson possesses an extensive 30-year oil and gas executive background with an emphasis on both management and finance. He previously served as CFO and then as president of Equatorial Energy Ltd., a public Canadian oil and gas exploration & production company. Equatorial developed from a “start-up” to a TSX listed company with a market capitalization in excess of $400 million and was later sold to Resolute Energy of Calgary, Canada. In addition, Matheson was the founder, president and CEO of Java Petroleum Corp., a private E&P company with operations exclusively in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Java was subsequently acquired by TSX listed Southern Pacific Resources Ltd.

Matheson graduated from the University of British Columbia and was admitted to the Institutes of Chartered Accountants in British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, and Canada in 1975.

Matheson replaces Mathew Wong, who is pursuing other career goals after serving as Dejour’s CFO since its ‘start-up’ reactivation in late 2004.
