Claudine and Pascal Vinet

Behind every successful man there is an amazing woman!  Bravo to the lovely Claudine Vinet, who raised three wonderful children and supported Pascal as he pursued his distinguished business career with Air Liquide around the world.  We could not have asked for a more gracious couple to share in the FACC's 2021 Global Leadership Award at our 31st Annual Fête and First Virtual Gala!

Pascal Vinet, a member of the Executive Committee of the Air Liquide Group, has been appointed Group Vice President, supervising the operations in Europe Industries, Africa, Middle-East and India, starting September 15, 2021.  He will also supervise the Safety function at Group level.  CEO of Airgas, Inc. since its acquisition in 2016, and up to July 1, 2021, Pascal led its successful integration and development within the Air Liquide Group.

On behalf of the FACC Board of Directors, we wish Pascal and Claudine all the best as they embark on their next adventure with Air Liquide and make their way back home to France. We hope they will keep fond memories of all the years they spent here and will consider the Philadelphia region "their home away from home".  They will always have a special place in our hearts.  


Félicitations/Congratulations to Pascal and Claudine for enthusiastically embracing their American experience.  Warmest wishes for continuing success and a world of happiness in the future!
