Shell makes new appointment to its executive team

LNG giant Shell said it has appointed Ed Daniels to the newly created role of strategy, sustainability and corporate relations director.

Besides the appointment, Daniels would become a member of Shell’s executive committee, according to a statement on Monday.

Daniels will have accountability for the company’s existing strategy, sustainability, and corporate relations organizations.

“Now is the right moment to bring these three strategic capabilities together in one executive committee directorate,” said Ben van Beurden, Shell’s chief executive.

“As we accelerate towards our goal of becoming a net zero emissions business, we are putting greater emphasis on how we engage with all stakeholders on the many complex issues and opportunities related to the energy transition,” he said.

Daniels joined Shell in 1988 and has held roles in Shell’s upstream, integrated gas, downstream, as well as projects and technology businesses.

He previously served as Shell’s UK country chair, and in his most recent role as executive vice president strategy, portfolio and sustainability, led the development of the company’s ‘Powering Progress’ strategy to drive the decarbonization of the energy system and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, it said.

Worth mentioning here, Shell recently started trading with a single line of shares, completing its simplifaction process which included moving its headquarters from the Netherlands to Britain.
