25 Jul Polaris Production Partners Announces Grant Farn as Chief Financial Officer
DENVER, June 3, 2019 – Polaris Production Partners, (“Polaris” or the “Company”) a leading independent oil and natural gas company operating in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin of Colorado, announces the addition of Grant Farn as its Chief Financial Officer.
“Grant’s addition to Polaris represents an important next step for us as we continue to develop our DJ Basin assets,” said Polaris Production Partners Chief Executive Officer Ryan Sullivan. “His experience and track record of success within the energy space will be a major asset for Polaris, and we look forward to working to continue building a premier conventional operator in Colorado.”
Mr. Farn brings more than 20 years of experience in energy and finance and is a CFA designation holder. Prior to joining Polaris, Mr. Farn served as the Chief Financial Officer for two private equity backed E&P companies where he led all aspects of the accounting and finance groups. In those roles he was integral to fundraising, management, acquisitions and divestitures.
“We believe that Grant’s deep financial skillset will allow Polaris to grow through add-on acquisitions of additional quality oil and gas assets owned by motivated sellers with bad balance sheets,” said Polaris Production Partners Board Member Brad Morse.

During his tenure with Scotia, he was a key component in the firm’s U.S. and international growth and was integral as an investment professional in the firm’s $250 million private equity platform.
“This is an exciting time to join Polaris,” said Mr. Farn. “The Company has built a significant position in Colorado, with long term stable cash flow. I look forward to joining the team and managing its profitable growth.”
