Royal Dutch Shell executive Jessica Uhl has been elevated to chief financial officer for global operations.
Uhl, the current executive vice president of finance for integrated gas, begins her new post in March and will continue to work at The Hague. She will replace CFO Simon Henry, who will assist with the transition through June.
Before joining Shell in 2004, Uhl was a director of project development and later a vice president of corporate development for Enron in Houston and Panama.
Uhl also will serve as an executive director of Shell and sit on the executive committee. Shell CEO Ben van Beurden praised Uhl’s promotion.
“Jessica combines an external perspective with broad Shell experience and is a highly regarded executive with a track record of delivering key business objectives from cost leadership in complex operations to M&A delivery,” van Beurden said in the announcement. “I look forward to working with her in assuring its financial success as we execute our strategy to re-shape Shell.”
