Zev Kaminetsky will be the new vp of sales for Fratello.

The company announced that Kaminetsky will formally begin his role on Jan. 11. He most recently served as the national sales director for Royal Agio Cigars USA, which was shut down last Spring after being acquired by Scandinavian Tobacco Group. Prior to that, Kaminetsky worked for Drew Estate and Camacho.

“I’ve known Zev since before I started Fratello,” said Omar de Frias, founder of Fratello, in a press release. “His professionalism, work ethic and family values fit right into our culture of hard work. I respect his commitment and the reputation he has worked so hard to build with the hundreds of brick and mortars and consumers he has come across with. I can’t be any more excited to welcome Zev to our small family.”
