Last week, Brunei Shell Petroleum Company (BSP) Sdn Bhd held a hi-tea event in honour of Dato Seri Laila Jasa Dato Malcolm Brinded, the executive director of Upstream International of Royal Dutch Shell, who will be retiring from his post next month.
Held at the Indera Samudera Hall, Andy Brown, the new executive director of Upstream International was also present. Dato Malcolm joined Shell in 1974 and has held various positions around the world including Brunei, the Netherlands and Oman. In 2009, Dato Malcolm was appointed as the executive director of Royal Dutch Shell.
In July 2011, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, conferred the medals “Most Distinguish Order of Paduka Seri Laila Jasa 2nd Class” to Dato Malcolm during His Majesty’s 65th Birthday celebration.
In his welcoming speech, Ken Marnoch, managing director of BSP, said that having worked with both men, being a “young talent”, also knows the importance of having the responsibility to be able to recognise young talent and develop it. “This is clearly something that I will remember and I hope that I can do the same thing,” said Marnoch.
“Malcolm is a man with enormous principles and a very clear focus on people and safety, … and he will be retiring and standing down, but he will continue to run the Shell Foundation,” said Brown, who was also previously in Brunei during his 27 years of service to Shell.
