La Aurora USA this month officially launches its Miami-based in-house distribution office, featuring a full team with sales staff calling on accounts and supporting the portfolio. Retailers who previously carried La Aurora products under the former distributor, Miami Cigar Company, will now be serviced directly by La Aurora USA.
La Aurora has grown the team in the last several months with the addition of CEO Ed McKenna and John Ferrigan, director of sales. More recent hires include Greyci Tineo as director of operations, William Marante as national events manager/ account executive, Dominico Magaña, account executive for Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma, George C. Zaglifa, account executive for the west including California and Nevada, and Brand Manager John Gaglio.
States and/or regions not referenced will be covered by the Miami office and through email ([email protected]) until a new sales representative is hired
“La Aurora was founded in 1903 with a humble creed to work for the common good, maintaining integrity, authenticity, frankness, perseverance, honesty, and a passion for excellence,” Guillermo León, president of La Aurora, said in a press release. “ With our in-house distribution and expanded team, we will bring that same level of quality that you find in every facet of La Aurora cigars and continue to build long-lasting relationships with retailers and consumers across the states.”
