Our numbers prove that.” Oliva continued, “Dave has more than earned the title of VP Sales and I look forward to his continued success at Oliva.”

My wife and children have made tremendous sacrifices for my career. None of this happens without them.”
Wagner also had this to say about the new Regional Manager positions: “We have incredible sales coverage across the US with one of the largest sales forces in the premium cigar industry. As we continue to grow, the addition of regional managers was an absolute necessity. Each manager brings a unique set of valuable strengths and skills that will ensure our continued success. “
“With this team in place, we’ll continue our pattern of growth,” Wagner continued. “Even in a down economy we’ve seen increased sales. There’s more to come. We’re not done. Not even close.”
