Massimo Andolina, SVP Operations, Philip Morris International

Philip Morris International (PMI) is one of the first leading international consumer product companies to completely reinvent itself by voluntarily disrupting its industry. In a radical move toward phasing out cigarettes from its product portfolio, PMI is in the midst of reinventing itself as a multi-category consumer goods company. In this exciting 1-to-1 interview, Maria Villablanca, CEO and Co-founder of The Future Insights Network and host of the TransformTalks podcast, is joined by Massimo Andolina, PMI's SVP of Global Operations and the driving force behind PMI's radical transformation to uncover the complete case study. Tune into this session to discover how PMI transformed from a manufacturing-centric cluster of functional silos to a well-connected digital supply chain ecosystem powered by the advanced planning capability required to build resilience into its new operating model.
