Marcel Ludwig, Financial Director
You can never plan for everything in a secondment or transfer; there are always unforeseen things that crop up which you have to adjust to. Flexibility is always a key factor.

Marcel Ludwig went to Basingstoke for five years, initially working in the Financial Planning & Reporting division, and later in Analysis. His secondment turned into a transfer: He decided to stay with Linde UK.
