I am very proud of what we have achieved in the last year with the exceptional Linde team! Eamonn Parker, who has been part of the Linde UK Board since 2018, will be the perfect successor, as he knows the business inside out. Thus, he can ensure continuity, while at the same time putting even more focus on our Linde customers.
