Doris Joins LNG Ltd
Liquefied Natural Gas Limited has appointed Ms Kinga Doris as General Counsel and Joint Company Secretary. Ms Doris will take up her appointment in early September 2015, based in Houston, Texas, USA.
Ms Doris will be responsible for all statutory, securities, regulatory and other legal activities of the LNGL group as well as management of outside legal counsel across all operations and global project activities. In this capacity, she will be part of LNGL’s senior leadership team reporting to Maurice Brand, LNGL’s Managing Director and CEO.
Mr. Brand said that Kinga’s appointment, made after an extensive search over several months, addresses a key resource need for our maturing business. “LNGL is growing and diversifying its activities and operations in three countries, with the potential for further expansion later this year”, said Mr Brand. With this growth comes increasing complexity in legal, compliance, and regulatory matters requiring senior leadership and broad business experience. “We are very confident that Kinga has the experience and skills to meaningfully contribute in the management of the wide range of corporate and LNG project activities LNGL engages in.”
Ms Doris has 20 years of experience advising global energy companies in various capacities including corporate law, securities, corporate finance, and M&A.
