Professional Background: Elmer A. Milz retired from Shell Development Company in 1987 following a 42 year career with five Shell Companies in various field offices in the United States, the New York head office, the Royal Dutch Shell office in the Netherlands, Shell Company of Venezuela in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Shell Pipe Line Corp. in Houston, and the Shell Development Co. in Houston. He has held technical, technical management, and operating management positions covering most aspects of the Exploration and Production business. His final assignments were first as Director of Research for Shell Pipeline Corporation and then as Manager of Research and Development for transportation systems and engineering for Shell Development Co. In his later years with Shell he undertook special short-term assignments in Japan, Australia, Great Britain and on the north slope of Canada and Alaska. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy.
Since retirement he has resided in Houston with his wife of fifty six years. He has held office and been a director of The Torch Club, The Pioneer Oil Producers Society and the Exchange Club of Memorial. For recreation he enjoys fishing, boating, swimming and scuba diving.
ESCH Experience: Elmer joined the Executive Service Corps in 1989, just five years after the Corps was founded in Houston. In his 21 years of service he has contributed over 8000 hours of volunteer service time coordinating and/or consulting on over 700 projects for 400 charitable organizations. He served as Chief Project Coordinator for six years while also serving on ESCH's Board of Trustees and as its Secretary. During 2001 Elmer resigned his position on the Board of Trustees and as Chief Coordinator to free more time for other activities. He still works as coordinator and consultant.
According to Elmer: I thoroughly enjoyed my career in the Oil business and I was pleased that I could use this experience to assist the charitable non profit world. It has been rewarding to see how much benefit the ESCH organization has provided and how much it continues to offer to society.
