LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD) today announced that Margaret G. McGlynn has elected to retire from the Company's Board of Directors, effective November 23, 2020 following
15 years of dedicated service.
Ms. McGlynn's decision to retire comes as she ends a full, 15-year term as an independent director on Air Products' Board, as Air Products has a term limit of 15 years for directors in its Corporate Governance Guidelines.
