Maxwell presided over the major diversification of Philip Morris through the acquisitions of Kraft and General Foods. In so doing, Maxwell created the largest consumer goods company in the world and significantly lessened Philip Morris’ dependence on tobacco products. Throughout his CEO tenure, he successfully streamlined the acquisitions and achieved strong financial performance results.
