U.S. LNG export project developer Tellurian’s president and CEO Meg Gentle said the company has made new additions to its executive leadership team members.
Kian Granmayeh, formerly director of investor relations, is now Tellurian’s chief financial officer, responsible for financial strategy and liquidity, replacing Antoine Lafargue who will join the marketing group as senior vice president of LNG Marketing to advance commercialization of the Driftwood project.
Before joining Tellurian in January 2019, Granmayeh worked at Apache Corporation for four years in various roles in project execution, strategic planning and investor relations. Previous to that, he was a vice president at Lazard Freres & Co.
Amos Hochstein, formerly senior vice president of LNG Marketing, is now Tellurian’s executive vice president of LNG Marketing, leading the marketing of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and partnership interests from Driftwood LNG.
Before joining Tellurian in 2017, he served as the U.S. special envoy for international energy affairs and led the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Energy Resources, where he oversaw global energy foreign policy engagement and advised the U.S. Secretary of State and the vice president on global energy markets.
Keith Teague as EVP and CEO, Daniel Belhumeur as EVP and general counsel, Tarek Souki as EVP and president of Tellurian Trading UK, and John Howie as EVP of upstream and president of Tellurian Production Company, will each continue as members of the executive leadership team.
President and CEO Meg Gentle noted that the company is redirecting resources to complete the marketing of the Driftwood LNG project, which is fully permitted and ready to begin construction.
