Vogt has, since 2010, held several senior finance positions within Linde. He first joined Linde Group, Afrox's holding company, in early 2007 as the senior corporate controller for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. In this role, he supported the implementation of Linde's new controlling and reporting strategy, following the BOC Group merger in 2006. He was also in charge of the negotiation and implementation of Linde's Global Shared Services.
