After nearly 40 years of service, David Moss, Shell’s UK retail general manager, is to retire at the end of the year. Having spent his entire career in downstream, initially in aviation and marine, he joined retail in the 1980s.

His recent notable achievements have been the retail leadership of North Europe where he led the business through a period of business changes, the divestments of Denmark and Norway.

In the UK market he revitalised the retail network with a series of initiatives which helped put the brand at the forefront of the industry in terms of its convenience and fuel offer. He also oversaw the growth of the Shell-branded dealer network.

He will be replaced by Bernadette Williamson.
