Sherry Duhe, the chief financial officer of Woodside Petroleum, has resigned to instead pursue a career opportunity with another Australian-listed company.

Duhe joined Woodside in late 2017 from Shell, where she held senior international roles, based in Houston.

Prior to joining Shell, Duhe worked for ExxonMobil, Duke Energy and JM Huber in various countries in the Americas and Europe.

Duhe has a Bachelor Degree of Science in Accounting from the Louisiana State University and Master of International Business Administration Degree from the University of South Carolina.

Meg O'Neill, Woodside's chief executive, said: “Sherry’s financial and commercial stewardship of Woodside over the last four years has been integral to continuing Woodside’s success. Over this time she has maintained a strong balance sheet which has provided Woodside’s resilience in challenging trading circumstances.

“Sherry’s passionate leadership has been central to delivering the financial and commercial architecture for our proposed merger with BHP’s petroleum business and the Scarborough development.

“We wish Sherry all the best in her future endeavours,” she said.

Duhe will remain with Woodside into the first quarter of 2022 to ensure a smooth transition of her key responsibilities. A process is under way to replace Duhe, with the role continuing to be based in Australia.
