Fuente's Right Hand Man

Wayne Suarez is the strong and quiet force behind the scenes at Arturo Fuente, the world's largest family-owned cigar brand.

George Lopez, January/February 2010

Not long ago, at the Las Vegas Big Smoke, Suarez stood suit-clad as hundreds of cigar lovers poured into a ballroom set for a luxurious meal. It was the lunch break for the Big Smoke seminars and Fuente was hosting the event. As Fuente Jr. prepared to speak to the crowd and Fuente Sr. shook hands with well-wishing fans, Suarez hovered in the wings, quietly speaking to a person here, a person there, ensuring that all the details were attended to, the little things that ensured the audience saw an event move like clockwork.

For Suarez, it was just another day. Taking care of the small details to make sure things were done the Fuente way—properly.
