The Star Early Edition - - COMPANIES -

IN­DUS­TRIAL gases and weld­ing prod­ucts firm African Oxy­gen (Afrox) yes­ter­day ap­pointed Matthias Vogt as chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor with ef­fect from Au­gust 1, fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Do­rian Dev­ers last month. Dev­ers re­signed in prepa­ra­tion for re­lo­cat­ing to New Zealand to pur­sue op­por­tu­ni­ties out­side Linde Group, Afrox’s hold­ing com­pany. Vogt joined Afrox in July 2015 as fi­nance gen­eral man­ager, play­ing a key role in Afrox’s 2015/2016 turn­around pro­gramme, and would bring a wealth of rel­e­vant ex­pe­ri­ence to the role of ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. Since 2010, he has held a num­ber of se­nior fi­nance po­si­tions with Linde Group and was re­spon­si­ble for the ne­go­ti­a­tion and im­ple­men­ta­tion of Linde’s Global Shared Ser­vices. Afrox said Vogt has a strong fi­nance and com­mer­cial back­ground and un­der­stands the needs of dy­namic and chang­ing busi­ness en­vi­ron­ments. – ANA
