“In the eight months since we launched Forged Cigar Company, we’ve seen an exponential increase in sales across our portfolio. We’re now in a place where we have to expand our team to keep the promise we made to our retail partners. To provide the utmost support to our brands at retail, we are promoting from within to fill a newly-created position of regional sales manager. We will also increase our coverage in Arizona, Nevada, New York and New Jersey,” says Sean Hardiman, national sales manager for Forged Cigar Company.
