The head of U.S. sales for Russian-based Total Flame Cigars has resigned. Callie Pullen informed halfwheel that she is no longer serving as director of U.S. operations for the company.

Vladimir Kuraev is now listed in that role.

Total Flame was founded by Maxim Perivezentsev and Vladimir Roshchin in 2010. Two years later, the company established its U.S. operations out of Amarillo, Texas. It currently produces four lines—Bright Line, Dark Line, FTW and Nicaragua—with more coming. At the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show last month, the company debuted Off The Rails, Premium, Spokes and Wild One—all of which are expected to arrive in November.
