Shell Australia has announced that Zoe Yujnovich will succeed Andrew Smith as chairman of the Shell companies in Australia from Apr.1, 2017.
Smith will take up the position of Executive Vice President Trading & Supply from May this year. As a result, Yujnovich will relocate to Shell’s Australian headquarters in Perth to assume both Smith’s Executive Vice President Australia & New Zealand position and responsibility as Country Chair.
Yujnovich is currently Executive Vice President Oil Sands, based in Calgary. Prior to joining Shell in 2014, she held frontline and management roles in mining across three continents. She joined Rio Tinto in 1996, after obtaining an engineering degree from the University of Western Australia, where she held roles including company president in Brazil and CEO of the Iron Ore Company of Canada.
“Andrew has left Shell’s business in Australia in a strong position, as we continue to build a viable export business while meeting the demands of local customers. I’m particularly excited about continuing to leverage the strong businesses we have in Australia and getting even closer to our customers as their needs and our industry continue to evolve,” Yujnovich said.
