Chesapeake Energy (CHK) on Monday named as chief compliance officer a lawyer it had previously hired to respond to an SEC investigation. Patrick Craine was hired to augment CHK's regulatory and legal compliance efforts after last year handling the SEC's inquiry into the controversial perk that granted former CEO Aubrey McClendon a share in each of CHK's wells.
