Kuuts, LLC has announced Steve Ysidron has joined the company as its new ceo for U.S. operations.


Ysidron is best known for nearly two decades at Savinelli, overseeing the company’s cigar division. In 2012, following Savinelli’s departure from the cigar industry, Ysidron launched Epicurean Cigars. The company was relatively dormant through much of 2015, though Ysidron sued the Epicurean’s distributor, House of Emilio, late last year.

He takes over following the departure of John Gonzalez, who left the company for Gran Habano in January.
