Even as Houston’s Cheniere Energy is spending $1 billion to build a new gasline across Oklahoma, the company is expanding its board of directors.
Michele A. Evans, Executive Vice President of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics joined the board effective June 7 as an independent director.
Evans has more than 32 years of experience in the defense and aerospace industry. She’s held positions of increasing responsibility and led a number of Lockheed’s programs in support of the U.S. military.
“Michele brings decades of experience in leadership in designing, building, and delivering complex projects for both domestic and international customers. Her breadth and depth of experience will be a tremendous asset to Cheniere’s Board of Directors as we continue to execute on our growth strategy,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Cheniere helped pioneer liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. and is at the forefront of one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing energy markets worldwide. I look forward to applying my skills and experience to help Cheniere capitalize on its competitive advantages and deliver on its strategy,” said Ms. Evans.
Ms. Evans graduated magna cum laude from Clarkson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering. She serves on the board of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and is a member of the Clarkson University Coulter School of Engineering Advisory Board.
Cheniere Energy has expansive operations in Oklahoma and is in the process of building a new gas line from Kingfisher south to the state line.
