United Cigars continues its expansion with the addition of Dan Davison as their Director of Marketing. Dan comes to United Cigars with 10 years of experience in all aspects of the cigar industry from both sides of the counter.
“I’m honored & excited to join United Cigars, our brands have a rich history with more stories to tell,” said Dan Davidson. “I look forward to collaborating with our distribution partners, and the great team at United Cigars.”
With a beautifully balanced professional career that will translate well in this newly created position, Dan will personify the United Cigars mission. Dan comes to United Cigars serving most recently as a Marketing Brand Manager for Altadis USA. Prior to that he was the Northeast Account Executive for Kristoff Cigars. Dan previously also served as the General Manager of multiple brick & mortar tobacconists in his native state of Rhode Island as well as New York.
“This is a welcomed addition to the growing team at United Cigars,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars. “Growth is only possible through belief and support from our retail partners, this in turn provides us with the opportunity to put the right pieces in place.”
United Cigar began as a US based cigar store chain in 1901 growing to nearly 3,000 shops. United Cigar eventually became part of the corporation that bought Marvel Comics in 1968. The United Cigar chain represented the interests of the Consolidated Tobacco Company; the tobacco trust that controlled the American Tobacco Company.
Today, United Cigars distributes and manufactures premium cigars within the United States. Distribution agreements are in place with Selected Tobacco (Atabey, Byron & Bandolero), Arnold Andre (Terra Nova & Montosa), as well as Tabacalera Magia (Jose Dominguez, Hightower & Yaya). United Cigars lines include La Gianna Havana, Abuelo, Firecracker, Classic, and the flagship brand United, to name a few.
Additionally, United Cigar Series Unidas, a collaboration with respected manufactures, provides premium cigar retailers with Limited Release productions.
