Another sudden high level departure from Royal Dutch Shell PLC surrounded by intrigue

Andrew Longden,  Executive VP of Treasury and Corporate Finance of Royal Dutch Shell Plc is departing the company in June, in unexplained circumstances. 

*In November 2003, Mr. Longden joined Shell as its Group Treasurer, with overall responsibility for treasury, risk management, M&A and pensions management for the Shell group worldwide. He was a Member of the working group that was responsible for devising and executing the merger of Shell Transport and Royal Dutch. He serves as a Director of Shell International Finance B.V. Mr. Longden serves as also a Trustee of the Shell UK Pension Scheme.

Oddly, Shell is refusing to comment on the reasons for his sudden departure, which is taking place soon after the company announced its takeover of the BG Group.  

Justin Scheck of  The Wall Street Journal says that Shell has declined to make Andy Longden available for interview. 

Shell has never explained the surprise departure of Peter Rees QC as head of Shell legal soon after Ben van Beurden became Chief Executive of Royal Dutch Shell Plc.
