I had the privilege of working closely with Sam during his tenure at Drew Estate. As the CMO of Kretek/Phillips& King/TMG/Ventura Cigar Co., I partnered with Sam on creating a wide-range of mission-critical strategic marketing and branding projects. During our time working together, Sam demonstrated his trademark thought-leadership and out-of-the-box marketing approach that has earned him the unanimous respect of the cigar industry. From brand management to digital/social media strategy to experiential marketing, Sam proved to be an amazing marketing partner and the work we did together will yield results for years to come.
Managing Director, Tobacco Business Magazine
Working with Sam has been an absolute pleasure. When you have the opportunity to build and create a partnership with a business, you almost always need to have someone in the driving seat who has a vision. With that vision must come massive action to make it all happen. Sam is exceptional at delivering on this with passion and focus, and with a sure certainty of following through, always exceeding expectations. Through his knowledge of marketing and constant strive to innovate, Sam has taken Drew Estate’s brands to the next level, globally. Sam has been an integral partner to Tobacco Business Magazine and Tobacco Plus Expo, I have personally enjoyed working with him and breaking the boundaries for success. The fact that he is genuinely interested in learning about you as a person and knowing more about how he can help you and your business, is very refreshing. I am excited to follow Sam and his career and remain confident he will flourish and be very successful in his next venture.
