Philip Morris to double rep team
The 18 locations to be targeted by the larger field team will be 70% urban and 30% rural
The move represents a partial reversal of the tobacco manufacturer’s 2019 rep redundancies in towns and rural areas to focus on cities instead.
Announcing the investment, PMI’s head of commercial planning, Kate O’Dowd, said 18 cities and regions would be targeted in the field-team growth. “The distribution will be 70% urban and 30% rural,” she said.
Asked which areas would be covered and for the numbers of reps to be recruited, Philip Morris said this was “commercially sensitive”, but said the investment would include the south, north and midlands.
