Jackie Forrest, director of global oil for IHS CERA, is taking a short mid-career break before pursuing her next opportunity.

ARC Financial Corp., the private-equity energy investor, has added to its research roster.

Calgary-based ARC has hired Jackie Forrest, the former leader of North American crude oil research for IHS CERA, as vice-president. The firm's research department is headed by economist, author and columnist Peter Tertzakian.

Ms. Forrest left IHS CERA, the energy consultancy, earlier this month to take a short career break. She is well known for studies into the economic and environmental impacts of oil sands development.

She starts at ARC Financial in July.
