John Hofmeister

Former President, Shell Oil Company

There is something that goes beyond the immediacy of earning a profit for shareholders that speaks to the socially responsible requirements to operate in an ever-evolving society.

John Hofmeister has no doubt that in 2030, nearly every new car made will be electric. A business leader for over 35 years, Hofmeister retired from being President of Shell Oil Company in 2008. He promptly founded the non-profit group, Citizens for Affordable Energy. This public policy education firm promotes sound energy security solutions for the nation, including essential infrastructure and public education on energy issues.

Hofmeister is the author of Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk from an Energy Insider. Hofmeister serves as the Chairman of the National Urban League and is a member of the U.S. Department of Energy's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee as well as the Sodexo Business Advisory Board.
