Patrick Mullen has been appointed as Luxfer’s Board Chair; the high-pressure gas cylinder manufacturer confirmed on Thursday (10th March).

Current Non-Executive Director, Mullen will succeed David Landless, who has served as Board Chair for the past three years.

It was previously announced that Landless would not seek re-election at the company’s 2022 annual general meeting of shareholders, in accordance with Luxfer’s corporate governance guidelines, which advise retirement of Directors after nine years of service. 

On his new role, Mullen said, “I am honoured to take on the role of Board Chair at such an exciting time for Luxfer.”

“I look forward to working closely with my fellow Directors and the Executive Leadership Team to continue driving Luxfer’s long-term strategy and, in turn, delivering greater value to shareholders.”

Mullen was appointed a Non-Executive Director in September 2021 and serves as a member of the Remuneration Committee and the Nominating and Governance Committee.

With more than 30 years of global industrial experience, Mr. Mullen formerly served as President and CEO of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company.
