Liam Condon starts as the new Chief Executive at Johnson Matthey today. He joins from Bayer, where he was President of the Crop Science Division.
Liam says: “I’m incredibly excited and proud to be joining Johnson Matthey with its vision for a cleaner, healthier world. I will be spending my first few weeks at our different sites and with customers, and am very optimistic about our growth opportunities. I can see the business is well positioned to accelerate progress across Decarbonisation, Hydrogen Technologies and Circularity – all of which are expected to deliver significant shareholder value and position JM at the forefront of the net zero transition.”
Liam has a remit from the Board to conduct a complete review of the strategy to determine how JM can best deliver value for its shareholders, and will report back by the end of May.
Liam takes over from Robert MacLeod, who will stay on to support the transition process until JM’s Annual General Meeting on 21st July 2022 when he will then retire from JM.
