The Royal Dutch/Shell Group announced one of its top executives, Steven Miller, 53, will take over as president, CEO and chairman of its Houston-based subsidiary, Shell Oil Co. July 1 with the retirement of Jack Little who turned 60 last year. Little had been president for a year. Miller, who will give up his managing director titles with the parent company, said in a written statement, he would like to see the U.S. branch "even more closely aligned with the rest of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group in order to deal with competitive realities more effectively on a global basis."

In a separate announcement last week Shell Canada announced the retirement of Chuck Wilson, CEO of Shell Canada for six years. "Chainsaw Chuck" took the job in 1993 with the intentions of cutting costs and exiting unprofitable businesses. Shell credited Wilson for streamlining the company and doubling shareholder returns. He will be replaced by Tim Faithfull, a Shell refining specialist who most recently headed up Shell's Singapore operations.
