Energy giant Shell has appointed Sinead Gorman as its next chief financial officer.
Gorman joined Shell in 1999 and has held various leadership roles in finance, including executive vice president (EVP) finance for projects and technology, integrated gas and new energies. She is currently EVP finance for Shell’s global upstream business.
Gorman will take over from current CFO Jessica Uhl on 1 April.
Shell’s chair, Sir Andrew Mackenzie, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sinead to the leadership of our company. She combines broad finance, trading, new business development and capital projects experience with a deep knowledge of Shell, and a strong commercial and external focus. I look forward to working with her in the execution of our strategy to accelerate Shell’s transition to a net-zero emissions energy business purposefully and profitably.”
