Jan Toschka has been appointed President of Shell Aviation, taking over from Anna Mascolo, who is moving into a senior leadership position in Shell’s Downstream business.
“I’m excited to lead Shell Aviation into this pivotal moment,” said Jan.
“As an industry leader, our ambition is not only to continue collaborating with our customers and partners but also to provide more sustainable products and solutions to help the industry decarbonize.
“I’m especially looking forward to delivering on our ambition to produce two million tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) per year by 2025, supported by the bold action we’re taking to transform our refinery assets to produce the SAF our customers want and need.”
Jan brings to Aviation broad leadership experience in energy transition, global marine, mobility as well as wholesale energy businesses.
Since joining Shell in 1998, Jan has amassed over 20 years’ experience in customer-facing roles across Downstream, Gas and Power, and Marine.
Jan takes over from Anna Mascolo who moves to Shell Downstream as SVP Acquisitions, Divestments and New Business Development.
Anna Mascolo said: “I’m proud of what we have achieved over the past two years, working with customers and partners across the aviation sector to help build the momentum necessary to accelerate decarbonisation whilst managing the unprecedented operational and business challenges of COVID 19.
“The business is resilient and ideally positioned to support our customers and the sector with the broad range of decarbonisation solutions necessary to navigate energy transition and deliver on its net zero ambition.”
