G2 Net-Zero LNG Chairman Chas Roemer has announced the appointment of Angele Davis as G2’s new CEO. Tom Hudson, G2’s former CEO, will stay on as a senior advisor to Roemer and Davis.
“Tom was pivotal in getting G2 to the position where we are poised to be the world’s first net-zero emissions LNG industrial complex,” said Roemer. “No one else could have gotten us so far, so fast, partnering us with a line-up of industry game-changers. He and I have been talking about this transition for a year and we believe this is the right time. We feel fortunate to have someone with Angele’s skills and experience to take the project from here.”
Davis, who joined G2 as Chief Financial Officer in December 2019, has 29 years in large organisation management and is a former Louisiana Commissioner of Administration under Governor Bobby Jindal and former Deputy Commissioner under Governor Mike Foster.
Hudson said, “I’ve had the pleasure of working side by side with Angele for the past year. She has tremendous business and political knowledge and has been an exceptional asset. As we move into construction and development, she will be critical to our success.”
“I’m honoured by Chas and Tom’s faith in me,” said Davis. “At G2, we’re revolutionising the industry. Our points of distinction – an ability to produce net-zero LNG from reservoir to dock, a first-class leadership team, possession of the best remaining site in the Gulf of Mexico, and our commitment to both community and social equity – mean we will demonstrate to the world that LNG can be both clean and profitable.”
“I am delighted to hear that Angele has been named CEO of G2-Net Zero,” said Donald T. ‘Boysie’ Bollinger, former Chairman and CEO of Bollinger Shipyards and current Chairman of Bollinger Enterprises. “Turning an innovative idea into a profitable, innovative business reality requires a keen insight, a strong leadership, and a firm discipline. Angele has displayed every one of those qualities in everything she’s ever undertaken. As a big fan of Angele’s, and an investor in G2, I am thrilled with this announcement. I think it represents a significant next step for G2.”
The G2 Net-Zero energy complex – a venture of Chas Roemer Innovations – will be the first to deliver a profitable portfolio of uniquely differentiated energy products while capturing the majority of greenhouse gas emissions. Using innovative technologies provided by Siemens, NET Power and 8 Rivers, G2 will overcome one of the biggest challenges to the future of fossil fuels.
Roemer continued, “G2 is on an accelerated development schedule. While other companies are slowly announcing their plans for the next three decades, G2 Net-Zero LNG will be capturing the majority of our emissions while producing net-zero LNG by 2027. Angele is the one to lead us there.”
Stephen Waguespack, the president and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry, said, “I commend G2 for choosing Angele Davis for this position. She is a smart, savvy, detail-oriented leader who knows how to drive performance and achieve excellence. Time and time again throughout her career, she has stepped up to take on big roles and deliver successful outcomes.”
Hudson led G2 from its inception in 2015 through its transition from a more traditional LNG model into a cutting-edge pioneer in emissions-capture and production of clean LNG. He put together the team that includes Siemens, NET Power and 8 Rivers, acquired the Calcasieu Parish site, and brought in expert advisers like Dr. Ernest J. Moniz, former US Secretary of Energy, to ensure G2’s vision.
“I’m extraordinarily proud of what we’ve accomplished,” said Hudson. “I enjoy working with Chas, Angele, and the leadership group we’ve put in place.”
