Bill Kroll has stepped down from his role as Chairman of MATHESON and related duties on the MATHESON board.

In addition, Bill has retired from his position on the TNSC Board after 13 years of service. Bill will continue in the role of advisor to MATHESON with primary focus on support of the Compound Semiconductor Equipment America business.

During his 24 years at MATHESON, Bill has overseen the evolution of the organisation from a specialty gas and regional industrial gas company to a national full line industrial gas and equipment supplier.

Effective immediately, Scott Kallman has assumed the position of Chairman, while continuing as President and CEO. Kallman relieved Kroll of his previous position back in 2013 when Kroll moved to focus on capitalising on growth opportunities and synergies afforded by close coordination with MATHESON’s parent company, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC). Kallman continued to lead the company’s operations and customer-facing divisions, while also assuming responsibility for corporate administration, human resources, legal services, business development, information technology, R&D, marketing, and finance.

The entire MATHESON Executive Team expresses its appreciation of Bill’s strategic vision and leadership over the years and wishes him great success in his future endeavours.
