Range Resources selects chief executive officer

Range Resources Ltd. has named Rory Scott Russell as its chief executive officer.

Russell most recently served as finance manager, exploration in Europe and Russia for Shell, where he gained more than 10 years of international experience in upstream positions.

In that role he oversaw all financial aspects of the business, corporate governance and control, treasury management, and sat on regional investment committees covering the North Sea, onshore Netherlands and Germany, Italy, Russia and Kazakhstan, Range said.

Range in April 2013 made an off-market share takeover offer for International Petroleum Ltd., which holds assets in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Niger (OGJ Online, Apr. 30, 2013).

Russell previously worked in The Hague- and Moscow-based role of finance and commercial manager, exploration, in Russia as well as in the strategic planning unit for Shell's global upstream business.

Range also appointed Graham Lyon and Christian Bukovics as nonexecutive directors, reported that Peter Landau, executive director, will step down effective immediately, and initiated recruitment for a full-time chief operating officer.
