Marketing Changes At Rocky Patel Premium Cigars

Mark Weissenberger resigned as vice president of marketing of Rocky Patel Premium Cigars on January 4. Weissenberger called the parting “amicable,” citing that he and his family were relocating to the northeastern United States. He said he intended to continue to work independently with Patel, maintaining the company’s social media platforms “for the immediate future.” 

Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is headquartered in Bonita Springs, Florida. It sells a wide range of handmade cigar brands, which are made in Nicaragua and Honduras.

Company owner Rocky Patel told Cigar Aficionado a successor had yet to be selected.
