Talisman Energy announced that John A. Manzoni, President and Chief Executive Officer, has agreed to step down, effective immediately.

“John has made a significant contribution to Talisman since he joined the company in 2007,” said Chuck Williamson, Chairman of the Board. “Since that time, Talisman successfully entered the unconventional business, establishing a substantial presence in some of the best shale plays in North America. In addition, his focus on investing in and developing core capabilities will serve Talisman well in the future. The Board would like to thank John for his five years with the company and we wish him well.”
