American Energy Partners LP on Monday announced the hiring of two new executives.

Aubrey McClendon’s company added Jeff Mobley as its senior vice president of major acquisitions and Jeff Agosta as chief financial officer of subsidiary American Energy-Utica LLC.

Mobley most recently served as senior vice president of investor relations and research at Chesapeake Energy Corp., which McClendon co-founded in 1989 with former partner Tom Ward. McClendon founded American Energy last year.

Mobley has worked for the company as a consultant for the past five months. He will coordinate the company’s acquisition initiatives in his new role.

Agosta is the former chief financial officer of Devon Energy Corp. He left the company earlier this year after about four years in that position.

Agosta now occupies the same post at American Energy-Utica, which has raised more than $3 billion of institutional capital for operations in eastern Ohio. The company owns about 290,000 acres in the southern Utica Shale, making it the largest leaseholder in that part of the play.
