Abe Flores has announced that he has hired a new national sales manager for PDR Cigars, Robbie Streitz.
“I’m extremely happy with my choice for national sales manager,” Flores told halfwheel. “I know he has all the experience and talent necessary to help me grow PDR Cigars.”
Flores added that he feels that he and Streitz are a lot alike and share common goals for the company. He also noted that this will free him up to focus more on the production end of PDR Cigars and the company’s factory in the Dominican Republic. Streitz has already begun working for the company.
“PDR has always been on my radar as one of the up and coming brands,” Streitz told halfwheel. “I’m going to make a conscious effort to develop the sales force and work on customer service for our retailers.”
Streitz was most recently the director of sales for Blanco Cigars, joining that company in January 2015. He previously worked for A.J. Fernandez and Esteban Carreras as the national sales manager for those companies.
He replaces Sean Williams, who held the position May 2013 through November 2014.
