Company Summary:

Altria Group, Inc. was formerly known as Philip Morris Companies, Inc., is an American corporation and among the world’s largest producers and marketers of tobacco, cigarettes, and related items.  Altria operates worldwide and is headquartered in Henrico County, Virginia.  Altria is the parent company of Philip Morris USA, US Smokeless Tobacco Company, Inc., Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, among other tobacco-related brands.  

The rebranding of Philip Morris Companies took place in 2003.  Altria emerged because Philip Morris decided to put emphasis on their business portfolio, which consisted of Philip Morris USA and Philip Morris International, and owned 84% stake in Kraft.  “Altria” came from the Latin word for “high”.  This was a trend for companies that rebrand their names to something that previously did not exist.  The company’s branding consultants mentioned that “the name change alternative gives the possibility of masking the negatives associated with the tobacco business.” 

Altria Group provides a vast selection of benefit plans and programs created to meet their people’s needs.  Their companies succeed in large measure due to their employees who contribute to the organization.  This benefit plans and programs are created to attract, retain, and motivate world-class talent.
