Cook’s sudden departure just the start of dramatic changes at Shell

By John Donovan

The following information has been assembled from multiple Shell insider sources.

Funeral in Berlin: Tomorrow a two day meeting commences in Berlin involving the Shell top 100.  

A formal farewell to the departing Chief Executive Jeroen van der Veer will take place during the first day of the meeting. 

The second day has been set aside for his replacement, Peter Voser, to announce his plans said to include:

1. A major cull of senior managers/executives. More than 30% will go, rewarded with golden handshakes. 

2. A merger of Shell EP and Shell Gas & Power, hence the sudden departure of Linda Cook (who according to insider sources was ruthlessly pushed into leaving). The merged business will be run on a centrally organised basis. Regional offices will be closed. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
