Shell Plc said on March 1 that Jessica Uhl, who has served as CFO for the last five years, will resign and has named Sinead Gorman as her successor.

“The board is immensely grateful to Jessica for her tremendous contribution to the company over many years, but particularly as CFO and especially during the past two years as we successfully tackled the many challenges presented by the pandemic,” Sir Andrew Mackenzie, Shell’s chair, commented in a company release.

In January, Shell ditched “Royal Dutch” from its name after moving its headquarters to Britain from the Netherlands. Uhl, a U.S. citizen and “a key architect” of Shell’s recent strategic changes, is leaving the group due to family reasons and because a long-term relocation to the U.K. is not possible, Shell said according to a Reuters report.
