Mombacho Cigars S.A. has hired Indiana Ortez as General Manager for the company’s Nicaraguan operations. The company continues its announcements of the 15th year anniversary and is implementing strategic changes as it prepares for an exciting new chapter in the company’s history. Indiana is from Nicaragua’s oldest Nicaraguan tobacco family and is bringing years of deep tobacco knowledge and fresh new energy to Mombacho’s production team.
From the official press release, Cam Heaps, President of Mombacho Cigars S.A., commented: “It is both an honor and a pleasure to have Indiana joining the Senior Management team at Mombacho. While Indiana’s impressive and broad expertise is a welcome asset, her passion, spirit, and management style will also be an important part of the company’s cultural vision.”
Indiana Ortez, also from the press release, adds: “Being the first Nicaraguan female General Manager of a cigar company like Mombacho challenges me twice as much because I feel the responsibility to carry the high legacy of women in our industry. This position allows me to keep my personal promise of working with well-fermented tobaccos and continuing to push quality and consistency to an uncompromising place. Moving to the exciting colonial town of Granada, Nicaragua, is also an exciting part of the role. Mombacho feels like a spaceship that is ready for take-off.”
