We are pleased to welcome Paul Newman, who will be joining Petrogenium as a Client Director and Managing Consultant. Paul has had a 40-year global career in refining and petrochemicals operational excellence, consultancy, commercial, and complex sales experience – including 25 years in Shell Downstream Manufacturing. After key positions in technical and operations management, Paul moved to a more of a strategic role in the leadership team of Shell Global Solutions, Shell’s external consultancy. More recently, he has worked as an external consultant for Bain & Co, Reliance Manufacturing Industries, and Head of Global Consulting Sales and Transformation for Yokogawa/KBC. Paul has cross-functional capabilities and experience, which add value across a wide range of customer businesses. He has a passion for Operational Excellence, HSE, and coaching and mentoring emerging talent. He has a hands-on approach to building trust and helping clients grow and develop. Paul believes “in these uncertain and challenging times, credibility and relevance is key in delivering value for our clients. This can best come from hands-on experience of running the assets. This reduces risk, provides a high return on investment, and reduces time to value. Petrogenium can ‘walk the talk’ as a trusted advisor – from the C-suite to the operator. That’s what makes Petrogenium different”.
