Shell's Departing CFO To Join Rio Tinto As Non-Executive Director
LONDON, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell's chief financial officer, Simon Henry, will join miner Rio Tinto as non-executive director from July 1 after he leaves the oil major.
Henry, who has served as CFO for seven years of his 34 years at Shell, will hand over to Jessica Uhl on March 9 and leave the company on June 30.
"Royal Dutch Shell confirms that Simon Henry, Chief Financial Officer of the company, has been appointed a non-executive director of Rio Tinto with effect from July 1, 2017," Shell said in a statement on Friday.
Henry was one of the driving forces behind Shell's bumper $54 billion acquisition of BG Group last year.
