The new office includes Dixon, chairman Archie Dunham and CFO Domenic Dell’Osso, according to the statement.

    Dixon has served as executive vice president and COO since 2006 and has held various senior operational positions since joining Chesapeake in 1991. Dell’Osso has served as executive vice president and CFO since 2010 after serving in various financial roles since 2008.
