"Since joining the BOC Group in 1979, I have steadily moved up the organisation and achieved most of my career objectives. I am, however, of similar age to Danny Rosenkranz, BOC's chief executive, and therefore cannot see an opportunity to move forward and run a company in my own right." BOC said it expected to announce Mr Ghasemi's replacement and "other consequent organisational changes in the near future."
