Leaked email from incoming Shell CEO Peter Voser reveals list of senior appointments

By John Donovan of Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com

Printed below is a self-explanatory leaked email from Peter Voser, the incoming Chief Executive of Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

Energy journalists, kindly mention this website if you use material from the leaked information which reveals a host of important senior appointments around the globe. Recent contact with a number of you has resulted in a series of articles some published internationally, including for example, a front page lead article in the Financial Times. We draw your attention to the sudden explosion of postings on our Shell Blog facility by disgruntled employees which have arisen from the changes. 

THE LEAKED EMAIL FROM PETER VOSER

From: Voser, Peter SI-GLOBAL

Subject: Message to all staff from Peter Voser: Appointments to Roles Reporting to the Executive Committee

Dear Colleagues 

I wrote to you on May 27 from the Shell Senior Executive Forum in Berlin to outline the changes we must make to speed up our journey to better performance.  

These changes will be structural, behavioural & cultural. 

I wrote to you again on June 8 confirming the next levels of structural change reporting to the Executive  Committee (EC-1).

To maintain momentum, I am now pleased to confirm that the Executive Committee have confirmed the appointments to the new EC-1 roles. You can now find these on Shell Online.  I would like to congratulate all those appointed to these roles.

Our next milestone is to design, consuIt, and announce appointments to EC-2 by end July as part of my commitment to move through this process as quickly as possible and to keep you informed on the journey.

Regards

Peter
