Gurkha Names Hyams New C.E.O.
Posted: June 6, 2011
Kaizad Hansotia, owner of Gurkha Cigars, has named Gary Hyams as the company's new chief executive officer and president.
"I think Kaizad has done a great job in creating such a unique brand in Gurkha, which has unlimited potential both here in the U.S. and indeed globally," said Hyams, who has been in the cigar industry for more than 30 years. Most recently, Hyams served as chairman of C.A.O. International Inc. (which is now part of Scandinavian Tobacco Group), and he has also held positions as the managing director of Henri Wintermans in the United Kingdom and managing director of Loretta Cigars London Ltd.
"Gurkha is a very unique brand," Hyams said. "My goal is to get a great team around Kaizad and take Gurkha to the next level."
