Strategic American Oil has appointed Sarah Berel-Harrop as secretary, treasurer and chief financial officer (CFO). Berel-Harrop replaces Johnathan Lindsay, a prior founder and director of the company, who has resigned.

She received a BA degree from Cornell University and a MBA from University of Texas – Austin. From 2006 to 2009, Berel-Harrop worked with Hyperdynamics. She was responsible for the company’s financial accounting and reporting, and, from June 2008 through June 2009, served as the company’s CFO.
From July 2009 through March 2011, Berel-Harrop operated an accounting firm as a sole practitioner. From 1 March 2011 through the present, she has been Strategic American Oil’s controller.
Berel-Harrop is a certified public accountant (CPA) licensed in the state of Texas. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy, Houston Chapter.
