He has served as global marketing director for coatings for Shell Chemical Ltd.; marketing director of Shell Chemical Co.; business transformation consultant for Shell Oil Co.; manager of marketing quality for Shell Chemical Co.; Midwest marketing and sales coordinator for Shell Chemical; economics specialist in products planning for Shell Oil Products; and corporate planning specialist for Shell Oil.

Prior to joining Shell, Endres was an Associate - Primary Industries Component for Chase Manhattan Bank in New York during 1989. From 1982-87 he worked for Mobil Oil Corp. as a senior production geologist for its Gulf Coast Division in Lafayette, La., and as a senior exploration geophysicist for its Dallas-based Alaska Division.

Shell Chemical Risk Management is an affiliate of Shell Chemical Co., a major supplier of monomers, intermediates and polymers. SCRiM itself is not a supplier of chemicals or plastics, but rather of financial services to help companies manage price risk.
Endres is a late speaker replacement at Executive Forum 2000 for Jack Perini, SCRiM's vice president of sales and marketing, and will share the hour-long risk management presentation with ConAgra Trade Group's Mike Bridges on Friday morning, Oct. 15.
