Shell’s female head of gas and power earned £3.9m in 2008 – by resigning

Oil company’s ‘golden goodbye’ made Linda Cook the second highest-paid businesswoman in Britain

Terry Macalister, Monday 14 September 2009 18.39 BST: guardian.co.uk

Linda Cook earned £3.9m last year, making her the second best-paid businesswoman in Britain. But the former head of gas and power at Shell only achieved the top remuneration spot after a “golden goodbye” when she left the company after 29 years’ service.

American-born Cook abruptly resigned after losing out to rival Peter Voser in the race for the chief executive role following the retirement of long-standing boss, Jeroen van der Veer. read more

Paddy Briggs elected as a Trustee of Shell Contributory Pension Fund

It has come to our attention that former Shell executive Paddy Briggs (above) has been elected to serve the thirty-three thousand Shell pensioners in the UK as a Trustee of the Shell Contributory Pension Fund for four years commencing January 2010. In addition to the elected members, the Board of Trustees has seven Shell appointees, including UK country chairman James Smith and Clive Mather, the Chairman of the Board.

The manifesto on which Paddy Briggs was elected was:

“I joined Shell Mex and B.P. in 1964 and retired from Shell in 2002 having worked in Shell UK Ltd, Shell International and operating companies in The Netherlands, Hong Kong and Dubai. The Shell that most of us once worked for is long gone – as the “reserves” scandal and the recent furore over top executive remuneration have shown. Such events, coupled with the deteriorating financial position of many pensioners (which was exacerbated this year by a derisory 0.9% annual pension increase) illustrate the extent of the changes in Shell and confirm the urgent need for a strong defence of SCPF member interests by the one elected MNT Trustee directors. I was “First reserve” in the elections in 2007 and hope to go one better this time around. If elected I will do my upmost robustly to represent the interests of the Pensioner constituency and all other beneficiaries of the fund.” read more

The corporate gravy train is still on track but is the mood shifting?

A fine insight was provided this year by Shell, whose pay committee awarded £3.6m in bonuses to executives even though performance targets were missed. The justification was that the scheme allowed the committee to apply "discretion". Shell's cheek was so bare-faced 59% of shareholders voted against the pay report.
