Intrepid Potash looks in-house for next general counsel
Denver, Colorado-based Intrepid Potash has promoted Christina Sheehan to become general counsel and corporate secretary.
Sheehan joined Intrepid in December 2021 as deputy general counsel. According to an SEC filing, Kyle Smith, vice president, general counsel and secretary of Intrepid submitted his resignation from the company, effective May 12, with Sheehan becoming interim general counsel. Smith’s LinkedIn profile states that he is now general counsel with United Energy Trading.
Before joining Intrepid, Sheehan was a partner with law firm Modrall Sperling Roehl Harris & Sisk, where she practiced from September 2009 to November 2021. She specialized in environmental and regulatory law and has legal expertise in the areas of water rights, water quality, mining, energy, air quality, natural resources and environmental compliance.
Intrepid is a mineral company that provides potassium, magnesium, sulfur, salt and water products used in agriculture, animal feed and the oil and gas industry.
Bob Jornayvaz, Intrepid’s executive chair and CEO, says in a statement: ‘Christina’s experience in mining, natural resources and water rights make her ideally suited for this role. Since joining the team in December 2021, we’ve benefited from her extensive understanding of New Mexico’s water and environmental regulations, and have been impressed by her leadership, work ethic and thoughtful approach to her job.
‘On behalf of Intrepid, I’d like to congratulate Christina on this promotion, and we look forward to her continued contributions to our team.’
