General Manager Marine, Shell Chemicals
Catherine joined Shell in November 2012 as the GM Marine for Chemicals, in this role she is responsible for the global shipping of all Shell’s Chemical products, safely and with competitive freight.
Prior to Shell, Catherine worked at BP for 15 years, predominantly in the Shipping business, for oil, gas and chemicals. She moved to Singapore with BP in 2008, to be the Regional Chartering Manager for APME, with commercial responsibility for BP’s fleet of oil tankers in the Region and all chartering activity.
Alongside the world of ships, Catherine developed a strong interest in employee communications and engagement and has worked to improve these across the businesses she’s worked in. Most recently she’s been part of the team which created ‘i-Mindset’, a culture change movement in Chemicals, which Catherine passionately feels will make a difference to the way we do business.
