Herklots Moving from Davidoff to Nat Sherman for New Position
Posted: May 12, 2011
Michael Herklots, the
longtime manager of the two Davidoff cigar stores in New York City, is
leaving Davidoff for a new position at Nat Sherman.
Herklots, who last served as general manager at Davidoff, has taken on a new position at Nat Sherman called executive director, retail and brand development. Herklots will be joined in the new position by his friend Pat Felitti, the former general manager of Rothmann's Steakhouse in Manhattan, who has taken the position of director of retail sales and hospitality for Nat Sherman.
The staffs of Davidoff and Nat Sherman were informed just before this story broke online. Herklots told Cigar Aficionado that he tendered his resignation from Davidoff on April 7, and said he will fulfill his responsibilities with Davidoff, which just opened a new flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City. Herklots has been with Davidoff for nine years. Nat Sherman said Herklots would likely begin his tenure with the company starting in June.
"We're excited to have Michael as part of the family," said William Sherman, executive vice president of Nat Sherman Inc. "We're proud of the [Nat Sherman] name, and the reputation. It needs a new sense of commitment to develop it and bring it along. Michael's creativity and passion and sense of values really help put the pieces together to reinvigorate the Nat Sherman brand."
Nat Sherman opened its doors in New York City in 1930 and created the Nat Sherman cigar brand at the same time. Originally the brand was made in Tampa using Cuban tobacco, but today it comes in a variety of non-Cuban styles.
