With regards to his new position at Tarazona Cigars, Ben told me:

I am extremely excited to embark on this new venture with Eddie and Tarazona Cigars. I have been blessed with the experiences gained during my time with Don KiKi Cigars and thankful to Karen Berger.

I first started in the cigar business on the retail ownership level in 2002. Since then I have been able to dive into many avenues of this wonderful industry and now I have the opportunity to be able to start anew, on what will be an amazing chapter in my career.

Tarazona Cigars has also hired Justin Sandlin, third generation tobacco and cigar salesman, to be the company’s Southwest Regional Manager. The Fort Worth, Texas native will be responsible for building the Tarazona Cigars brand in Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma and his home state of Texas.
