Benjamin Holt announced today that he purchased Dissident Cigars and will be releasing the cigars in the very near future. Holt has been in the cigar industry for the last 5 years starting off jobs in retail at TJ’s Cigar Lounge in McGregor, Texas. Most recently, starting in 2015 he began at Black Label Trading Co. as a sales representative.
Benjamin Holt says in a press release, “Over the past few years I have seen many cigar brands come and go. Some stopped operations due to fear of FDA regulations. Others because of failure to adapt to the changes in the market. My intent with Dissident is to learn from those lessons and utilize my experience from both the retail side and as a cigar representative to create a cigar brand for a new generation of cigar smokers.”
Benjamin will continue as a sales rep for the company along with his new venture.
Benjamin Holt also states, “I have always thought that Dissident had huge potential and in time I would like to bring this brand back into the market. There are numerous objectives that need to be met first before that can happen and I am working with some incredible people to see that come to pass.”
