Luciano Ruggia (100 %)
In January 2020, I took over the management of AT Switzerland. My goal is to strengthen and better position AT with regard to the developments in the consumption of nicotine products as well as the structural changes that are taking place, especially at the legal level. Our country is still one of the laggards in terms of protection from smoking and the influence of the tobacco industry. There are very competent, committed people working both in the AT and in our network. I would like to lean on them to advance the cause and values of AT Switzerland.
