CROWNED HEADS ANNOUNCES TIM OZGENER'S RETURN TO THE CIGAR INDUSTRY AND THE LAUNCH OF OZGENER FAMILY
Crowned Heads is excited to announce that Tim Ozgener will be returning to the cigar world and will be joining Crowned Heads to launch Ozgener Family Cigars. Tim was formerly with CAO International where he spent 16 years, serving as President from 2006-2010, and was instrumental in taking the company from a start-up to a global force in the premium cigar world. For the past 12 years, Tim has served as Co-Founder and President/CEO of OZ Arts Nashville, a contemporary arts center in Nashville.
Tim is an investor in Crowned Heads, and after some pandemic-induced soul-searching, found that his love for the premium cigar industry was a voice inside that could not be silenced." left the cigar business 12 years ago; however, my passion for cigars and my love for the true camaraderie of the business never left me," commented Ozgener. "I'm thrilled to be joining Crowned Heads, seeing old friends, making some new ones, and launching my brand of cigars under the 'Ozgener Family Cigar' brand." Added Crowned Heads co-founders, Jon Huber and Mike Conder, "When we learned of Tim's desire to get back in the business and join Crowned Heads, it felt like the band' was truly getting back together. We're excited to have Tim on board, and we're looking forward to growing the OFC brand and Crowned Heads together in the years to come."
