Babs Omotowa appointed Shell VP at The Hague


Outgoing Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NLNG, Babs Omotowa, has been appointed by Shell International into the Global Upstream Leadership Team as Vice President (S&E).

In a statement by Kudo Eresia-Eke, General Manager, External Relations, the company said that Omotowa, who will be completing his time at the helm of affairs at NLNG on September 1, 2016, will report to the Upstream Director across Shell’s Conventional, Unconventional and Deepwater global businesses.

The outgoing MD/CEO hands over to the incoming chief executive, Tony Attah, who will be engaged in an on-boarding programme until September 1 when he would effectively take over.

Omotowa, joined NLNG with a well-deserved reputation as a turnaround expert from his previous work in Europe, focused on improving the company’s operations through cost leadership management, assets rejuvenation, organisation culture alignment, change management, commercial creativity, innovative supply chain and procurement management and human capital development.

These programmes made NLNG not only more profitable but a strong brand with great momentum that can sustain its competitive advantages for years to come.

“Omotowa who was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria LNG Limited by the NLNG Board in December 2011 will be sorely missed for his uncommon vision, professionalism, compassion and commitment”, the statement said.
