Why I’m Leaving the Big Six Big Tobacco Companies

“You’ve got to do what’s right for your employees, and that’s what I’m doing.

I want to be in the big six.

They’re doing a great job.

But I’m going to leave the Big 6 Big Tobacco companies.

They’ve got my back.”

— Big Six Tobacco Chairman Andrew Wakefield, in a speech to shareholders, Feb. 4, 2017
