Royal Dutch Shell is still a client of Hakluyt & Company

By John Donovan

I have received confirmation this afternoon from a reliable source that Shell remains a client of Hakluyt & Company.

Shell’s close association with the spy firm, said to be heavily populated by current/former MI6 officers including the former Head of Shell Global Security, Ian Forbes McCredie OBE, stretches back over a decade.

Titled Shell directors were directors and major shareholders in Hakluyt. Sir William Purves was Chairman of Hakluyt & Company Limited. Sir Peter Holmes (now deceased) was President of The Hakluyt Foundation, which supposedly fulfilled an oversight function.

Hakluyt & Company is now a subsidiary of Holdingham Group Limited.
