Shell UK has named its replacement for outgoing corporate affairs

director John Wybrew. Alan Goldsmith, a certified accountant who has

spent his entire 25-year working career at the oil and gas giant, will

take over from Wybrew with added responsibilities on 11 March.



Currently head of finance, investment and information for Europe at

Shell International, Goldsmith will join Shell UK’s board as corporate

affairs and administrative director, combining responsibilities for

finance, communications, personnel and legal matters.



Wybrew, who handled Shell’s response to the Brent Spar fiasco last

summer, is due to take up a board appointment at British Gas (PR Week 12

January).



Meanwhile Shell International, the services arm of Royal Dutch Shell,

has recruited Karen de Segundo to replace head of public affairs Tony

Brak.



Brak, who held the post for three years, retired at the end of December

ahead of a major restructuring at Shell International’s central offices

in London and The Hague.



Previously head of business development for Central and South America,

de Segundo has taken the title head of external affairs but will assume

most of Brak’s PR responsibilities.



‘Shell is a company that moves people around its various divisions and

uses them in different areas,’ said press officer Julian Barnes.
