J.C. Newman Cigar Company proudly announces that it has named Aldo Puncioni as its International Sales Director. As a cigar ambassador, taster, and retailer, Puncioni joins J.C. Newman with decades of experience in the premium cigar industry. In his new role based in Italy, Puncioni will oversee J.C. Newman’s sales in Europe and its European bonded warehouse in Slovakia.

“I am thrilled to welcome Aldo to our family,” said Bobby Newman, executive vice president. “Today, J.C. Newman cigars are sold in 86 countries around the world, and my family and I are very excited that Aldo will be sharing our family’s story and cigars in Europe.”

Known on social media as “Smoking Moses,” Puncioni is president of the Venice Cigar Club, a member of Cigar Journal magazine’s tasting panel, and owner of a successful cigar store. He also developed a highly regarded cigar cutter, the “Smoking Moses Razor Cut.”

“After 11 years as a retailer in Venice, now I feel so blessed to be part of this wonderful industry. The Newmans welcomed me in their beautiful family, and I’m really honored to be their face in Europe,” said Puncioni. “I’m living in a dream, a dream made of passion for cigars, and true love for the community of cigar smokers.”

Puncioni is succeeding the late Stefan Bastiaenssens, a beloved member of the J.C. Newman family who served in this role with great distinction from 2018 until his untimely passing in 2020.
