Joe Gro left his position as the Senior Digital Marketing Manager for Drew Estate a year ago to become the Director of Marketing for Quality Importers, the company that owns Xikar, Palio, Stinky and other cigar accessories. But only a year later, Gro leaves Quality Importers and moves to Casa de Montecristo as the Senior Trade & Marketing Manager.

Life is about a journey and seizing opportunity when presented,” said Gro in a statement. “And that is why today I am announcing that I am resigning from my position at Quality Importers Trading Co. and excited to announce I will be joining Casa de Montecristo and Tabacalera USA as Sr. Trade and Marketing Manager. I want to thank Mike and Marilyn Giordano, and Alex Goldman for the past year. QI is a great company with fantastic products, many I was happy to introduce to you this year. You’ll see many more soon and I am excited to watch them continue to grow.”
Casa de Montecristo is a division of Tabacalera USA with 25 retail stores and lounges all over the United States. Some of these locations are owned by Tabacalera USA, others are franchises.
