Philip Morris International is one of the big tobacco companies. Youíve probably heard of them. Until
recently, they were owned by a parent company called Altria. The Chairman and CEO of Philip Morris

(a total of 21 hard-working executives) as a group, 25 million British pounds. That works out to about
$50 million divided among this group of cool dudes who love the fact that you canít stop smoking.
