Royal Dutch Shell names new U.S. boss

Bruce Culpepper, Royal Dutch Shell’s U.S. boss will step down at the end of 2018 and will be replaced by Gretchen Watkins, the former Maersk Oil Chief Executive. 

Shell’s head of unconventionals, Greg Guidry, who oversees the Anglo-Dutch company’s shale production in North America and Argentina, will step down on June 31, when he will also be replaced by Gretchen.

Shell, which has large offshore production and a number of refineries within the United States, has earmarked its shale business as a key growth engine for the next decade.
