New Chairman Of Royal Dutch/Shell

The former boss of Siemens Heinrich von Pierer is appointed as the next chairman

The former boss of Siemens Heinrich von Pierer is appointed as the next chairman of Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell.

Last Tuesday, the oil giant's shareholders voted overwhelmingly to back plans to unify the company's dual-ownership structure, with Dutchman Aad Jacobs, due to retire in 2006, as non-executive chairman. Shell said in April that it had started looking for a successor to Jacobs.
