FIN Branding Group, one of the fastest growing names in electronic cigarettes, has promoted two individuals—Kevin Klyczek and Doug MacLeod—to the roles of regional director of sales, central and southeast, respectively.
In these roles, Klyczek and MacLeod will be responsible for developing, implementing and overseeing national and regional sales initiatives while working closely with FIN’s marketing department to effectively grow the company’s distribution footprint in their respective geographies.
“Both Kevin and Doug have an excellent track record within our company and each brings a unique point of view to this role,” said Elliot Maisel, chairman and CEO of FIN. “Kevin has done an outstanding job establishing FIN with many of the regional players in the Midwest, and I am excited to expand his reach so that he may continue building FIN’s presence in additional markets. Doug is coming into this role from our Trade Marketing Department, where he gained a deep understanding of how to promote our products to the consumer at the point of purchase; coupled with his previous sales experience selling traditional tobacco products, he will be a great asset to our sales force.”
Klyczek has brought extensive sales and account expertise to FIN, having spent 20 years in various roles selling traditional tobacco products for Swisher International. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Benedictine College.
MacLeod has a diverse background, including experience with E&J Gallo, and most recently Scandinavian Tobacco, before coming to FIN Branding Group. MacLeod received a Bachelor’s Degree from the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University.
