Historic moment as Trentadue becomes first female leader to hold the position
TORONTO, ON, February 1, 2024 – Rothmans, Benson & Hedges Inc. (RBH) has appointed Milena Trentadue Managing Director effective February 1, 2024. Trentadue succeeds Mindaugas Trumpaitis who is becoming Regional President for Latin America and Canada, Philip Morris International (PMI).
Trentadue, the first female to hold this position for RBH, joined the company in 2019 as Director of Commercial Deployment leading the total Canadian commercial operation including sales, distribution and revenue management. Prior to joining RBH, Trentadue spent 20+ years in the consumer goods industry where she excelled at delivering revenue gains through strategic planning.
Under Trentadue, RBH will continue to build on its position as a leader in smoking harm reduction by focusing on bringing to market science-backed, smoke-free products such as heated tobacco, vaping products and other new innovations that, although addictive and not risk-free, offer adult smokers better and potentially less harmful alternatives. As well, RBH will continue advancing the need for a supportive regulatory framework to ensure consumers have awareness about, can access, and can afford these alternatives.
