Showing the strength of Corporate Governance at GeoPark, a leading oil and gas exploration and production company listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2014, the KPMG Board Leadership Center has ranked its Board of Directors as the third best in Colombia. The honor was awarded to GeoPark after a process that evaluated more than 30 boards in the country.

GeoPark’s Strategy, Sustainability and Legal Director Monica Jimenez Gonzalez received the award from Ana Fernanda Maiguashca, chair of the Private Competitiveness Council, and Camilo Bueno, Growth and Strategy Partner at KPMG Colombia, at a KPMG Board Leadership Center annual event.

“We would like to thank KPMG and the juries for raising the profile of Corporate Governance in companies in Colombia. At GeoPark we believe that governance is essential for the productive sector to continue being a benchmark for transparency, efficiency and sustainability, pillars that enable companies to contribute to Colombia’s economic development and generate trust in national and international markets,” Jimenez said on receiving the distinction.

The GeoPark Board was recognized for its diversity both in terms of gender and competencies, as well as the clarity in delegating authority in its decisions. The Board has nine directors with extensive technical and business knowledge, and experience within and beyond the energy industry. Four members of the Board are based in Colombia, three in Europe and two in the United States, guaranteeing global and local vision of the opportunities and challenges faced by the Company in particular and the sector in general.

The solid experience in renewable and non-renewable energy, the wide age range and the variety of backgrounds of the Board members are guarantees of good governance of the Company and contribute to guiding its strategy in the energy transition, which requires upholding competitiveness and guaranteeing energy security in the countries where it operates.

Since being founded in 2002, GeoPark has prioritized Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) management as part of its mission to ‘Create Value and Give Back,’ and works in the continuous improvement of Corporate Governance standards that ensure the delivery of value to all stakeholders.
