Gabriel Alvarez originally served as the Operations Manager for Kuuts, LLC, where he handled day-to-day operations for the company, including (amongst various other responsibilities) social media, marketing, brand development, logistics, and sales. Gabriel was the owner of a very successful cigar shop and lounge in Miami, Florida, prior to entering the manufacturing side of the cigar world.
According to Gabriel Alvarez, “after almost two years of helping to launch Kuuts, I have decided to resign. It was a hard decision to leave a company I was with from the very beginning, however I must do what’s best for my family and myself. I have nothing but good wishes for the Kuuts team, and I would like to thank them, and John Gonzalez in particular, for guiding me in this journey. I have accepted the position of Director of Sales with Maya Selva Cigars and am looking forward to this next step and to launching another great company in this incredible industry.”
Maya Selva Cigars has won several Cigar Journal awards in consecutive years. They have had excellent success in the European market, and they are well prepared to establish themselves in the United States.

Says proprietor Maya Selva of Alvarez, “few are those who truly understand what a great cigar should be. Gabriel, without question, belongs to this exclusive club. I am sure that those who will have the privilege of working with him will certainly acknowledge his natural talent and vast knowledge of cigars.”
