Royal Dutch Shell, which makes leading Shell Tellus S2 M 46 and Shell Gadus S2 V100 3, has named Jessica Uhl as its next Chief Financial Officer.
Uhl will take over the job from Simon Henry, with Henry recently revealing that he will be stepping down from the role. Henry is set to stay on the CFO board until 9th March, and it is him who will sign the company’s annual report for 2016. After this, Uhl will assume his responsibilities. However, Henry will still be available to his successor and the Board, to help with the transition, until 30th June.
Royal Dutch Shell’s chairman, Charles Holliday, said of Henry’s departure:
“The Board is grateful to Simon for strengthening capital management and the balance sheet such as to allow the acquisition of BG and executing that deal. His leadership in integrating the two companies and in re-orienting our strategy leaves us a financially stronger company. When he leaves our Board, it will be with our very best wishes.”
Henry spoke fondly of his time in the role, saying:
“[I have been] privileged to spend the past 34 years working with great colleagues, in a great company.”
Uhl, who has been with the company since 2004 and has had roles in finance leadership, will take up the role as an Executive Director of Shell and will also be a member of its Executive Committee. She will be situated in the Netherlands, which is where Shell’s headquarters are located.
