Sidd will continue to have responsibility for Treasury at Air Products, overseeing capital, liquidity and cash management; corporate finance; financial risk management; treasury planning and analysis; economic forecasting; and pension asset management activities. In his expanded role, Sidd will work closely with Simon Moore―who plans to retire at the end of March 2023 following a distinguished 33-year career with the Company―to ensure a smooth and seamless transition of Investor Relations responsibilities.
“Sidd brings a breadth of knowledge and expertise across finance disciplines, and since joining Air Products in April 2021 as corporate treasurer, he has played a key role in supporting our financial policies and strategies,” said Melissa Schaeffer, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Air Products. “As Sidd moves forward to also lead our Investor Relations function, he will be an excellent resource for the investment community as we continue to communicate and execute our core industrial gas and hydrogen megaproject growth strategy.”
Prior to joining Air Products, Sidd served as chief financial officer for FirstLight Power, Inc., with responsibility for strategic and financial functions, including Accounting, Corporate Reporting, Financial Planning and Analysis, Internal Audit, Insurance, Investor Relations, Information Technology, Lender and Rating Agency relationships, Procurement, Project Finance and Capital Markets, Risk, Treasury, Tax, and Strategic Development.
