Houston energy transition leader joins California company's board with investment
A Houston business leader has taken a seat at the table of a San Francisco-based tech company.
Puloli, an IoT solutions-as-a-service company has announced an investment from, Artemis Energy Partners, a Houston group founded by Bobby Tudor. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
With the transaction, Tudor joins Puloli's board of directors, bringing expertise from a storied career in energy transition from his roles at Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. and the Greater Houston Partnership.
"Bobby brings a tremendous amount of credibility and energy industry insight to Puloli and complements what Jodi Jahic and Aligned Partners bring to Puloli," Kethees Ketheesan, CEO of Puloli, says in a news release. "Bobby's endorsement of Puloli solution will be a big boost in accelerating our growth."
The investment from Artemis Energy Partners will be used to support research and development, operations, and more at Puloli, which recently launched a continuous methane monitoring service for energy producers. The funding will also support this new technology, called the Paradigm M-Series, as it rolls out across North America.
"I'm very pleased and excited to be a part of the Puloli team," Tudor says in the release. "The energy industry is hungry for solutions I'm confident Puloli can provide. Kethees and his team are poised to become a leader in the methane detection and measurement space, and I look forward to supporting that growth opportunity."
Tudor was the 2020 chair of the GHP and currently serves as the chairman of the Houston Energy Transition Initiative, or HETI. He founded Artemis Energy Partners in 2017 after his firm TPH merged with Perella Weinberg Partners in 2016.
