It is my privilege and honor to have become part of the Air Products team on July 1 and begin my role as the company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. Having over 20 years of experience in the industrial gas industry, and as member of this company’s Board of Directors for the past nine months, I have great familiarity and respect for this company. I am convinced there is no limit to what Air Products can achieve as I join our 21,000 global employees in pursuing the goal of being the safest and most profitable industrial gas company in the world.
As a team, I believe Air Products can be the best in the industry. We will be committed to excellence. In fact, I believe the only sustainable element of a long-term competitive advantage is the degree of commitment and motivation of the people in the enterprise. I possess a great sense of personal urgency and am very excited about working together with all of Air Products’ stakeholders as we move forward to achieve our goal.
