Royal Dutch Shell plc has released a statement claiming that it has appointed Wael Sawan as Upstream Director with effect from 1 July 2019.

In his new role, Sawan will reportedly become a member of the executive committee, taking over from Andy Brown. Shell claims that Andy will remain available to Sawan and the executive committee to help with transition until 30 September 2019, and will then leave the company after having served there for more than 35 years.

Shell Chief Executive Ben van Beurden said: “I am grateful to Andy for his strong leadership of the Upstream business, particularly having improved business performance during the recent years of low oil price. Through his disciplined focus on efficiency, portfolio optimisation, safety and talent development he leaves our Upstream business fit for the future.”

Over the course of his leadership of Shell’s business in Qatar, Sawan was reportedly awarded an OBE by the British government in 2012 in recognition of his service to business relations between the two countries.
