John Hofmeister's Biography

John Hofmeister was the President of Shell Oil Company from 2005 to 2008. His appointment as President came after serving as Group Human Resource Director of the Shell Group, based in the Netherlands.

He founded (and now heads) the not-for-profit, US-wide membership association, Citizens for Affordable Energy. This Washington D.C. public policy education firm promotes sound US energy security solutions for the nation, including a range of affordable energy supplies, efficiency improvements, essential infrastructure, sustainable environmental policies and public education on energy issues.

John is also the author of “Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk from an Energy Insider” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010).

As Shell Oil Company President, John launched an extensive outreach programme, unprecedented in the energy industry, to discuss critical global energy challenges. The programme included an 18 month, 50-city tour across the country during which John led 250 other Shell leaders to meet with more than 15,000 business, community and civic leaders, policy-makers, and academics to discuss what must be done to ensure affordable, available energy for the future.
