LONDON (ICIS)--Shell has appointed Hans Wijers its deputy chairman and senior independent director with effect from 23 May 2012, the Anglo-Dutch major said on Thursday.

Wijers is currently a non-executive director of Shell, a chairman of the energy and petrochemical group’s remuneration committee and a member of its nomination and succession committee.

He will succeed Lord Kerr of Kinlochard as Shells deputy chairman, who is standing down as a non-executive director of the company.

In June last year, it was announced that Wijers was stepping down as Dutch producer AkzoNobel’s CEO in 2012.
