It was another roller-coaster year at Shell, where Uhl has served as CFO since 2017 and played a fundamental role in the energy giant’s emissions targets and pivot toward renewable energy. In 2020, while grappling with a historic drop in energy demand, Shell announced its net-zero-by-2050 emissions target, which will require the company to transform its business away from fossil fuels. That plan has also been accelerated under pressure from a Dutch court ruling in May that demanded Shell move up its targets.

In 2021, Uhl was also appointed to Goldman Sachs’s board.
