The Gamucci Corporation Ltd today announced the creation of a new Scientific Products Division and the appointment of Adrian Marshall as Divisional CEO. It has been established to set the benchmark for innovation and quality in the electronic cigarette industry and to ensure Gamucci products meet future regulatory requirements.

Adrian has a strong background and reputation in the tobacco and nicotine product sectors. He has previously held a number of senior roles with the British American Tobacco Group, including Director of BAT’s Global Harm Reduction Programme, Managing Director of its’ nicotine products business Nicoventures Ltd, Group Head of Regulation and Corporate & Social Responsibility and Vice President Sales & Marketing in Japan.


Gamucci is committed to developing electronic cigarettes that receive Marketing Authorisation from the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK and other regulatory authorities in the EU and elsewhere. As an expert in the field Adrian will lead a team of specialists and expert advisors to develop new Gamucci products that will meet future regulatory requirements and provide smokers with the highest quality alternatives to tobacco cigarettes.


Tony Scanlan, CEO of Gamucci, said: “This new division will set the benchmark for quality and innovation. The rest of the sector will be challenged to meet our developments, which will continue to demonstrate that Gamucci is a technology leader. The Division will enable our products to meet and exceed the demands of regulatory agencies and assure our customers that Gamucci products are of the highest quality. As head of this exciting new division, Adrian will bring a wealth of knowledge to Gamucci and will add tremendous value as a member of the Board and Management team.”

I am delighted to be joining this ambitious and innovative business and look forward to working with the Board in capitalising on the many opportunities ahead.”


Taz Sheikh, Director and Co-Founder of Gamucci, said:“We have raised the bar a number of times since our entry into the industry in 2007. Gamucci was responsible for developing the world’s first disposable cigarette in 2008 and we have proprietary core cartomizer technology, which is now widely copied and for which we have secured a UK patent. Adrian’s team will help to ensure that Gamucci continues to lead the industry through innovation and quality.”
