Chief legal officer at Linde, Nick Deeming, is to step down this September.
Deeming was previously the head of legal at BOC prior to its takeover by Linde in a £7.5bn merger in September last year.
Deeming has expressed that he is looking for a new challenge. A replacement has not yet been found.
Deeming has only just completed the integration of the two legal departments and reviewed the company’s legal pabel, putting in place a new legal model that he dubbed The Linde Model.
