Financial Times: Coming home

By Martin Dickson

Jun 25, 2004

Yesterday’s appointment of Peter Voser as Royal Dutch/Shell’s finance director, in place of the ousted Judith Boynton, might be seen as encouraging on the reform front, or not, depending on your mood.

Mr Voser, who spent 20 years at Royal Dutch/Shell before moving to ABB two years ago, is an insider – not exactly an example of the fresh blood at the top that some would like to see. On the plus side, he is well respected in the City for the job he has done turning around ABB. His experience there should have given him some external perspective on Royal Dutch/ Shell’s problems, while knowing the company of old will help him hit the ground running. All in all, it looks a positive appointment.
