Clean Energy Announces Changes to Board of Directors
Clean Energy Fuel has added two senior executives from Total S.A. to its Board of Directors: Momar Nguer, President of Total Marketing Services S.A. (TMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Total, and Philippe Montantême, Senior Vice President, Strategy Marketing Research of TMS. Total, one of the largest energy companies in the world, purchased a 25 percent stake in Clean Energy through Total Marketing in June of this year.
Clean Energy also announced that the co-founder of the company, T. Boone Pickens, notified the board that he has decided to retire as a director as part of his recent curtailment in his business activity. The board of directors voted to designate Mr. Pickens Director Emeritus, which will entitle him to attend future Board meetings.
“Clean Energy is incredibly fortunate to have had the entrepreneurial leadership for the last 23 years of one of history’s great wildcatters in Boone. His vision in the establishment of and continued contribution to Clean Energy and its successes is hard to measure,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy. “But as the company has moved into its own leadership position in the alternative fuel market, we will benefit greatly from the guidance and counsel of two seasoned executives of one of the world’s most visionary energy companies in Momar and Philippe.”
Mr. Nguer, 62, currently serves as President of TMS and as a member of the Executive Committee of Total Group, where he joined in 1984, serving in various downstream positions. Mr. Nguer was appointed to his current positions with Total and TMS in April 2016. He has also served as a member of the Total Group’s Performance Management Committee since January 2012, and Chairman of the Group Diversity Council since August 2015. Mr. Nguer received a Master in Public Law from the University of Paris and a MBA from ESSEC Business School.
Mr. Montantême, 58, currently serves as Senior Vice President, Strategy Marketing Research of TMS. He joined the Total Group in 1984 and served in various operational positions in France and Africa. In July 2013, he was appointed to his current position with Total Marketing. He graduated as a Chemical Engineer from the École Nationale Supérierure de Chimie in Toulouse and also holds an MBA from the EM Lyon Business School.
