Walter van de Vijver Sacked Shell EP Boss

By “TomPain”

The article on Walter Van de Vijver was almost sympathetic. He was the designated hatchet man and he loved it. Everywhere he went lay-offs and destruction followed. He was fired because he wrote in an e-mail to Watts that he was “tired of lying” about the reserves. He intentionally lied and screwed the company and the stock-holders hoping he could get promoted and dump it on some other poor sucker before it blew up. This was where all of the pressure came from to jack up the reserves numbers. I loved reading about how he was forced out, almost makes it worth while. Evidently he brought his great charm and warmth to his new job, so much so that he got fired from the company he founded. and its also non-profit sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
