Join The Texas Tribune in person or on our livestream for a conversation with Marvin Odum, chief recovery officer for the city of Houston, moderated by Texas Tribune co-founder and CEO Evan Smith. Odum was appointed by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner in 2017 to lead the city’s recovery effort from the historic damage it suffered as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Previously, he served as chairman and president of Shell Oil Company and as an executive committee member of Royal Dutch Shell, where he directed a broad portfolio, from traditional oil and gas development to emerging technologies in a wide range of areas, including heavy oil, onshore gas, light tight oil, deepwater, wind and biofuels. Odum also served as CEO of InterGen, a global power development and generation company. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a board member for the National Urban League.
