“As we continue to position Airgas to capitalize on the many growth opportunities ahead of us, developing our human resources is as critical as having the right infrastructure and product and service offerings in place,” said Molinini. “Having worked in our field organization, Pam understands what our associates need to be successful day-in and day-out in our people-driven industry. Her field perspective, combined with her proven leadership skills, strong financial and business acumen, and human resources expertise make her uniquely qualified to lead our human resources strategy going forward and an outstanding addition to the Airgas senior management team.”

Claypool previously served as the Company’s Vice President – Talent Management, responsible for key programs influencing the employment experience at Airgas, including employee selection and orientation, talent development, and the Company’s diversity program. She also served as Vice President – Human Resources for Airgas’ North Division where she led all aspects of the division’s human resources functions.

Claypool joined Airgas in 2007 with the acquisition of Linde’s U.S. packaged gas business as Vice President of Finance for Airgas Great Lakes, Inc. before being named Chief Financial Officer for Airgas Great Lakes, Inc. Prior to joining Airgas, she spent three years in Linde’s U.S. group where she was responsible for business and financial analysis and sales compensation.

Before joining Linde, Claypool spent nearly fifteen years with Commercial Intertech, a manufacturer of specialty steel components primarily for the automotive and trucking industries, where she served in multiple finance and management roles, including general manager of the business both before and after its acquisition by Parker Hannifin in 2001. Claypool earned her bachelor’s degree in finance and management from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and her MBA from Kent State University.
