Christian Eiroa, president and founder of C.L.E. Cigar Company, has been elected to serve on the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Executive Committee. Eiroa’s term will begin on March 25, 2024.

Eiroa replaces Mike Conder of Crowned Heads on the Executive Committee. Conder’s term as the Associate Liaison for the PCA Executive Committee comes to an end next year.

“I am honored and proud to serve on this board,” said Eiroa in a press release. “I believe this is a historic period in time for our industry and the association and I look forward to serving and being a part of the executive committee.”

“Christian brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the board and his perspective as a manufacturer and factory owner will be invaluable as part of the leadership of the PCA Board,” added Scott Regina, President of the PCA Board of Directors.

Scott Pearce, PCA Executive Director, commented. “Anybody who knows Christian knows he goes a million miles a minute. His forward thinking, entrepreneurial ideas will be invaluable as the PCA moves forward,” Pearce said.

This is the second change to the Executive Committee, which basically serves as PCA’s Board of Directors. Earlier this year, Mary Szarmach joined the Executive Committee, replacing John Anderson, who stepped down following his term as Ex-Officio.

Regina added, “I know I speak for many past presidents, with whom Mike served, but I want to thank Mike for the many years of tireless service to the PCA. He was integral to many of the legal, legislative, and overall organizational strategies that we have developed and deployed over the years. We are definitely better off because of his involvement.”
