Robert C. Harrell

  • B.S., Chemical Engineering, 1964

Robert Harrell graduated from the University of Idaho in 1964 with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering. He began his career with the Shell Oil Company at the Anacortes Refinery in Washington State. In Anacortes, Harrell met his future wife Alison who was living and working there after moving from her home in South Africa.

Harrell was involved in numerous technical and operational assignments at the refinery before moving to Shell’s head office in New York City. He participated in many additional technical, operational and marketing assignments before becoming a member of Shell’s senior management team. In the late 1980’s, he served two years in London, England, as a liaison between the Shell Oil Company and Royal Dutch/Shell.

In the early 1990’s, Harrell became vice president of refining and supply for the Shell Oil Products Company with responsibilities for all of Shell’s refineries in the United States and the Supply/Trading Organization. He later became vice president of commercial products with marketing and business responsibilities for all commercial products sold in the United States. He also served on the board of directors for two of Shell’s subsidiary companies. He retired in 1997 after nearly 33 years with Shell.

Royal Dutch Shell, commonly known as Shell, is a global oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and has its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the fifth-largest company in the world (and the second-largest energy company) according to a composite measure by Forbes magazine and one of the six oil and gas “super majors”.

Shell has operations in over 90 countries, produces around 3.1 million barrels of oil equivalent per day and has 44,000 service stations worldwide. Shell Oil Company, its subsidiary in the United States, is one of its largest businesses.

Harrell and his wife live in Kingwood, Texas. They continue their active life and enjoy traveling to together all over the world. Harrell enjoys golfing, walking and bicycling. They have two sons, Rod and Kyle.
