A veteran of the United States Navy and former law enforcement officer for many years in his native state of Texas, John has been smoking cigars for more than 20 years. While living in Atlanta, Georgia, his love of cigars led him to build his own highly successful cigar shop, where Perdomo Cigars were his best-selling brand. He visited the Perdomo factory in Nicaragua twice as a retailer. After witnessing the passion and the emphasis on quality control put into every Perdomo cigar, he became an even bigger fan of the company.
A devout family man, John was looking for an opportunity to return home to Texas to be closer to his daughter’s family, including two grandsons, when the Perdomo sales rep position for that territory became available. After interviewing with Nick Perdomo, he received the offer of a lifetime.
“It truly was a dream job come true for me,” John said. “To work for a man who cares about his business and his team the way Nick does, in an industry I love and will be able to see my grandkids grow up was all I could ask for. I feel truly blessed for the opportunity.”

Favorite Cigar: “I like all of our cigars, but the Perdomo Reserve Champagne is my go-to cigar and the Perdomo Habano Boubon-Barrel Aged series is a phenomenal blend.”
