Nowadays, he leads a global Technology organization of more than 3.000 people from which several teams are based in Shell’s major technology centres in Houston, Bangalore, and off course Amsterdam.

Yuri is responsible for Shell’s technology strategy and new technology development, as well as external technology commercialization activities. Besides, he is a board member of the MIT Energy Initiative and Amsterdam Economic Board.
