Joined General Cigar in 1998
“Tobacco is a living material. As a tobacco person, I'm always trying to find ways to control the tobacco. Yet in the end, the "tobacco always wins". This relationship is very complicated, yet at the same time, it is fun.”
Today, as Vice President of the General Cigar handmade business, Jhonys oversees all tobacco operations, from growing and procurement to processing and manufacturing. Bringing innovation to the premium cigar category, he modestly refers to himself as a “cook”.
