Tellurian names new general counsel

Meredith Mouer succeeds Daniel Belhumeur, who has become company president

Meredith Mouer has been promoted to become general counsel and chief compliance officer (CCO) of Tellurian. She was previously deputy general counsel. She succeeds Daniel Belhumeur, who has been named company president by NYSE-listed Tellurian’s board.

Belhumeur had been Tellurian's general counsel since February 2017 and CCO since March 2017. Before joining the natural gas firm, he was vice president for tax and general tax counsel, tax director and domestic tax counsel at Cheniere Energy.

Mouer had been deputy general counsel since February 2017. Before joining Tellurian, she had been a partner in the corporate securities team at law firm Andrews Kurth since 2003. During her time at Andrews Kurth, her practice included advising clients on issues such as public and private equity offerings, M&A, joint ventures, special committees, corporate governance and proxy solicitation.

Martin Houston was recently named chair of Tellurian’s board. He co-founded the company in 2016 and had been vice chair of the board since the company’s launch.

Tellurian CEO Octávio Simões says in a statement: ‘This is an important moment for Tellurian as we navigate several key initiatives… These management changes ensure alignment and continuity. I look forward to working with Daniel as he oversees key functions while I prioritize bringing Driftwood LNG, now with growing commercial momentum, to [a] final investment decision.’
