Vada Capital would like to congratulate Lark Richardson on his newest opportunity of joining Advanced Upstream Ltd. (an Arc Financial Corp backed start up) as Chief Financial Officer. He joins a team of highly experienced individuals specializing in oilfield service technology development. We know Lark will be a valued addition given his immense amount of expertise and knowledge.

He has been a valued Vada team member, since joining in April 2013.  In his time here, he has acted as both a Managing Director as well as a Director and leader to our portfolio companies. Vada provided the unique opportunity for Lark to be self-directed and make decisions that had a direct impact on the businesses themselves. He clearly embraced that and continued to add to his knowledge. Lark has a vast array of skills including strong ethics, strategic financial discipline and operational excellence. His new team will no doubt benefit from his multidisciplinary abilities just as we did.

Lark’s larger than life personality and ability to connect with all the people he interacted with in his career at Vada will be something not easily replaced. We will indeed miss his company but we are excited to follow his next adventure.  The Advanced team is truly lucky to have him.

Congratulations Lark on this exciting new chapter,

The Vada Team.
