Chief Executive Officer
"On a personal front, 2021 has been a year to remember. I was appointed to the role of CEO in May, and I couldn't be prouder to lead such an inspiring and committed global workforce that's as determined to deliver a smoke-free future as I am.
"This is a future-one where cigarettes no longer exist-that is within reach. At PMI, we have the products and scientific capabilities to accelerate progress toward this vision, but we can't achieve it without the willingness, collaboration, and support of others. Ignoring science and innovation will only hinder progress for our society. Unlike the climate crisis-where we're still trying to understand and employ all of the science and tools required to move toward carbon neutrality-we have what's needed to go smoke-free today.
"If we have learned one thing this year, it is that science, innovation, and inclusion must be permitted to prevail. This will require everyone-from policymakers to people on the street-to value solutions over outdated dogma. Then we'll have a solid platform to build a better future for all, faster."
