Phill Green Stepping Down as chairman of Sutliff Tobacco Company

Phill Green, Chairman of Sutliff Tobacco (a part of Mac Baren Tobacco Company), will be stepping down from his position, the company announced in a recent press release.

In 2015, Green was appointed to the position of president of Sutliff Tobacco Company. He was tasked with turning Sutliff, America’s oldest pipe tobacco manufacturer, into a sustainable, stand-alone business. Green leveraged his vast experience in the tobacco industry to transform the company, making it profitable while integrating into Mac Baren’s global operation. In 2018, Green stepped down as president and relocated to the United Kingdom, at which point Jeremy McKenna took over as president. Green stayed on as chairman of Mac Baren’s U.S. operations and oversaw the transition.

With that transition now completed, Green plans to step down as chairman of Sutliff Tobacco Company at the end of April 2020.

“Phill has made a significant contribution to the development of Sutliff Tobacco Company since he became president in 2015,” commented Per Buch, chairman of Mac Baren Tobacco Company. “His international experience and his great understanding of the tobacco industry and the political environment we operate in have been invaluable. I would like to thank Phil for his leadership and guidance since he joined the company in 2015 and for his unique contribution to our U.S. Operations over the years.”
