Filippo Costi is joining Maya Selva Cigars as the new Chief Commercial Officer, starting June 28, 2019.
Costi has a doctorate in Architecture and Urban Design from Italy’s Politecnico di Milano. He comes to us from the world of luxury watches and jewelry, and brings with him a great deal of professional experience in the areas of customer service, management, marketing and sales.
His passion for cigars began in the early ’90s in Spain, and grew during several visits to Havana, Cuba, where he learned about the craftsmanship and the art of blending a great cigar. “I believe the best definition of luxury is time, the time spent perfecting and building a product. In this way, cigars are one of the greatest expressions of luxury, because of the time it takes to collect the leaves, dry and ferment them, select and roll them, and bring them to the global market… and finally, the time spent enjoying a cigar and sharing one with friends”.
Maya Selva Cigars is excited to have Filippo Costi on board and is sure his experience, knowledge and sales capabilities will complement the team.
