Talos Energy nominates new board member

Houston-based oil and gas company Talos Energy has nominated a new member of the company’s board of directors.

Talos Energy said on Tuesday that it nominated Paula R. Glover for election to its board of directors. Formal voting and confirmation of the appointment will be completed as part of the company’s annual meeting of stockholders scheduled for 11 May 2021.

She is being nominated to replace James M. Trimble upon his retirement from the Talos board of directors. Trimble became a member of the Talos board following the Talos-Stone Energy merger in 2017.

Glover currently serves as president of the Alliance to Save Energy, a bipartisan, non-profit coalition of business, government, environmental, and consumer leaders advocating to advance federal energy efficiency policy.

She is also a member of the National Petroleum Council, a federally chartered advisory committee established in 1946 to advise, inform, and make recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Energy.

Glover previously served as president and CEO of the American Association of Blacks in Energy, a non-profit professional association focused on African American and other minority input into the development of energy policy, regulations, and environmental issues.

Her other experiences include 15 years in the energy industry working with both electric and natural gas distribution companies in Government and Regulatory Affairs roles.

Talos chairman Neal P. Goldman said: “Paula has a distinguished career as an energy expert and is a leading advocate for sound energy policy, community representation in policy-making and industry relationship development.

She is a respected voice across a broad set of stakeholders and will provide sage advice as we continue to focus on our ESG initiatives, among many topics.

Upon her election to the board of directors, we expect her to play an active role in our Safety, Sustainability, and Corporate Responsibility Committee and I believe she will add tremendous value as a member of the board moving forward.

We’d also like to thank Jim Trimble upon his retirement from the Talos board of directors. Jim’s experience and insight were invaluable to Talos, and we will miss having him on the board“.

Glover added: “I’m very excited for the opportunity to join the Talos board. The company has an attractive asset base, solid financial position and numerous opportunities to build value in the future.

As one of the leading independent offshore producers, Talos also sits at a unique intersection at the forefront of safety, environmental responsibility, and the discussion of energy delivery and being a key contributor to the communities we serve“.
