Tiburon Boutique Cigars was born out of two old friends’ identification of a huge need in the Cigar Industry within the State of Texas and their instinctual, non-wavering work ethic!
As most cigar aficionados will attest, many of the best quality cigars on the market these days are produced by boutique cigar manufacturers. The irony is that most of these companies don’t produce enough annual volume to justify having an “in-house” sales team to represent them with B&M shops around the country. They all need passionate, professional representation in order to move their product from factory to warehouse to B&M and then ultimately, into the hands of cigar consumers.
We saw a huge existing need for these manufacturers and thought “who better than us to help fulfill that need!”
Additionally, most of those that do provide independent representation to boutique cigar manufacturers have huge, multi-state territories. To our knowledge, no one is concentrating their efforts on the Great State of Texas. The only markets that have similar sales potential would be NY/NJ and California.
We believe that there is more than enough opportunity here for our clients and focus exclusively on the State of Texas. This is another differential competitive advantage that we hold over our competitors! We believe that it is critical to our success to keep our territory and our client portfolio to very manageable sizes in order to do the best possible job for our clients!
Both Carter and Ozzie are regular guys that have been enjoying cigars from all over the world for more than four decades combined.
In addition to being an accomplished musical artist, having played with some of the biggest names in both Country and Blues, Carter has spent his whole life in Sales.
Born and raised in Texas, Carter is a graduate of the University of Texas. He is also a founding board member of the Boutique Cigar Association of America.
Chris “Ozzie” Osgood, an Ivy League graduate and former collegiate basketball player, has spent 30 years managing (Sales) and/or owning radio properties all over the United States including some of the most iconic in their respective formats.
Both guys have been in Sales their entire careers and preach strongly that they must believe in what they are selling (or they won’t sell it) and they apply this core belief to how they operate Tiburon Boutique Cigars. If they like the stick and would encourage a friend to try it, they believe in representing it! It’s really that simple. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about us and PSSITA!
