LNG giant Shell has appointed Rachel Solway as its new chief human resources and corporate officer after Ronan Cassidy decided to step down from the position.
Cassidy will step down with effect from December 31, 2023, and leave group service thereafter, Shell said in a statement on Tuesday.
“I’d like to thank Ronan for his 35 years of distinguished service to Shell,” CEO Wael Sawan said in the statement.
“In his eight years on the executive committee, Ronan has helped steer us through transformational change and several exceptional events, including the Covid-19 pandemic, with wisdom, integrity, and foresight,” Sawan said.
Solway, currently executive VP, human resources organization development and learning, will succeed Ronan with effect from January 1, 2024 and will be based in London.
“Rachel will bring a deep commitment to performance culture, and great energy and care for people, to this role,” Sawan said.
“As we deliver more value with less emissions in the coming years, through a focus on performance, discipline and simplification, Rachel will help us collectively realize Shell’s full potential,” he added.
