Career History
Director, Legal & External Affairs & General Counsel
2015 - Current

British American Tobacco We are the world’s second largest quoted tobacco group by global market share, with brands sold in around 180 markets. With more than 200 brands in our portfolio, we make the cigarette chosen by one in eight of the world’s one billion adult smokers. We hold robust market positions in each of our regions and have leadership in more than 50 markets. In 2011, our subsidiary companies sold 705 billion cigarettes. In the same year, our subsidiaries enabled governments worldwide to gather more than £30 billion in taxes, including excise duty on our products, almost nine times the Group’s profit after tax. We have sustained a significant global presence for over 100 years. Our business was founded in 1902 and by 1912 had become one of the world’s top dozen companies by market capitalisation. People and factories We have 46 cigarette factories in 39 countries. Eight of these plus one separate plant also make either cigarillos, roll your own or pipe tobacco. We also have a factory making smokeless snus. We employ more than 55,000 people worldwide. Our workforce is strongly multi-cultural and we have a devolved structure, with each local company having wide freedom of action and responsibility for its operations. Decisions are made as close as possible to the local stakeholders of each business, within a framework of principles, standards, policies, strategies and delegated authorities. Operating responsibly We believe that because our products pose risks to health, it is all the more important that our business is managed responsibly. Responsibility is integral to our strategy and through dialogue with our stakeholders, we are working to pursue our commercial objectives in ways consistent with changing expectations of a modern tobacco business. Tobacco growing We are the only international tobacco group with a significant interest in tobacco leaf growing, working with thousands of farmers internationally. Our companies run leaf programmes providing direct agronomy support to farmers if it is not otherwise available, covering all aspects of crop production and environmental best practice - in 2011 our companies ran these in 19 countries. The Group purchased approximately 440,000 tonnes of leaf in 2011, grown by around 200,000 farmers. What do our people say about us? How our employees feel about working here is very important to us. We carry out a regular global employee opinion survey called Your Voice to give our people a secure and confidential way to tell us exactly what they think about working at British American Tobacco
