Statoil suggests former Shell exec as new board member

The nomination committee in the Norwegian oil company Statoil has recommended that the company’s corporate assembly elects Jeroen van der Veer as a new member of Statoil’s board of directors.

Van der Veer was the Chief Executive Officer in the international oil and gas company Royal Dutch Shell in the period 2004 to 2009, when he retired.

Van der Veer thereafter continued as a non-executive director on the board of Shell until 2013. He started to work for Shell in 1971 and has experience within all sectors of the business, Statoil noted.

According to Statoil, Van der Veer is inter alia the chair of the supervisory boards of ING Bank NV and Royal Philips Electronics and member of the supervisory board of Boskalis Westminster Groep NV, and has significant competence within corporate governance.

The board of directors in Statoil currently consists of 10 board members, whereof seven members are shareholder-elected and three members are employee-elected. Pursuant to section 4 of the company’s articles of association, the board of directors shall have 9 – 11 member, and an additional board member may therefore be elected in order to strengthen the board’s competence, the Norwegian oil company explained.

The election to Statoil’s board of directors takes place in the company’s corporate assembly meeting on Thursday, March 17, 2016.

It is proposed that the election enters into effect from March 18, 2016, until the ordinary election of shareholder-representatives to the board of directors in 2017.
