On February 3, 2020, Joyce E. McConnell notified Antero Resources Corporation (the “Company”) of her intent to resign from the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) effective March 1, 2020 to focus her attention on serving as the President of Colorado State University (“CSU”). Ms. McConnell began her tenure as President of CSU on July 1, 2019. Her resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company or any of its affiliates on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.  Effective upon Ms. McConnell’s resignation, the size of the Board will be reduced to eight members.


Paul Rady, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented on the departure of Ms. McConnell, “I would like to thank Joyce for her valuable service on Antero Resources’ Board of Directors and wish her the best of luck as President of Colorado State University.”


Ms. McConnell commented, “Unfortunately, my increasingly busy schedule with CSU will not permit me to continue as a board member of Antero Resources. I have enjoyed my board service with Antero and wish the Company all the best going forward.”







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
