(Reuters) – Goldman Sachs said on Friday that board member Jessica Uhl is stepping down to focus on her role as president of General Electric’s energy spin-off GE Vernova.

Uhl was previously the CFO at Shell for five years, and was named as GE Vernova’s president in January.

She started her career at Citibank, where she worked in commercial and real estate lending, according to her profile on GE Vernova’s website.

Uhl joined Goldman’s board in 2021, becoming the fifth woman director on the investment bank’s board, and was part of the audit, governance and risk committee.

She informed the board this week that she would not stand for re-election at Goldman’s 2024 annual meeting of shareholders, the bank disclosed in a regulatory filing.
