September 7, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

The Board of Directors of Cigar Rights of America (CRA) announced today that Tony Gomez, Vice President of La Flor Dominicana, has been appointed to the CRA Board of Directors. 

The CRA board voted unanimously in support of Gomez’s nomination at a board meeting held on Tuesday of this week, and he will join the board immediately. Tony was nominated to fill the spot left vacant by the recent resignation of Alan Rubin. 

In serving on the board, Tony is following in the footsteps of his father, Litto, who previously served on the CRA board and has been a tireless supporter of CRA and its mission to preserve and protect the traditions of premium cigars. 

“We are very excited to have Tony join the CRA Board of Directors,” said Robert Levin, president of CRA and owner of Ashton Distributors. 

Gary Pesh, CRA board chairman and owner of Old Virginia Tobacco Co., added, “As we reflect upon our recent court victory, Tony’s depth of experience at such a young age provides an invaluable new perspective on CRA’s board.” 

In response, Tony said, “I am thrilled to join CRA and contribute to their efforts to protect the premium cigar industry. CRA continues to set the industry standard for professionalism in advocacy, and I cannot wait to get started.”
