Daily Mail: American woman for Shell board

19 May 2004,

TROUBLED oil giant Royal Dutch/Shell has opted to beef up its board with a company veteran rather than go outside for fresh blood.

American Linda Cook, 45, head of Shell Canada, becomes one of four managing directors at the company, bolstering a hierarchy depleted by the recent sackings of ex-chairman Sir Phil Watts, finance chief Judy Boynton and exploration boss Walter van de Vijver over the reserves debacle.

Cook, born in Kansas, joined Shell in 1980. She takes on her new job from 1 August. Her appointment will leave fellow managing director Malcolm Brinded free to run the core oil and gas division, at the centre of the scandal about overstated reserves.

Shell UK chairman Clive Mather will succeed Cook in charge of Shell Canada. and its also non-profit sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
