Glynn Loope Joins Premium Cigar Association as State Advocacy Director


“I first would like to offer a sincere thank you to Joshua Habursky, who has shouldered both federal and state responsibilities over the past year, and has done such a great job that we haven’t lost a step in that time,” said Anderson. “Now, thanks to some generous donations from our manufacturers and retailers, we are able to bring Glynn aboard. As we continue to progress in our advocacy programs, our members can be assured that we will continue to be an ever more productive voice for the industry.”

Looped added: “After more than a decade fighting for the industry, I could not be more pleased than to take everything I have learned and leverage it to the best use possible in fighting for retailers against state and local regulatory overreach,” said Loope. “Brick and mortar tobacconists across this country continue to face a deluge of unfair and misguided policies, and I consider it a great honor to fight for all these fine businesses.”
