“Jeff is a well-respected leader with more than three decades of industry experience, and as General Manager, he is the natural choice to take the EAS business to the next level and drive our respective brand expansion goals,” said John Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Swisher. “In the short term, the expanded partnership between EAS and Swisher will remain transparent to our valued customer base, and we will be following up with additional details as they become available.”

“I couldn’t be more excited about this arrangement and look forward to working with the Swisher sales and marketing teams and taking the Leap and Leap Go brands to the next level,” said Brown. “EAS was built from the ground up to prosper in the highly regulated tobacco environment, and with the bench strength of the Swisher sales and marketing teams, we have the power to broaden our reach and expand the distribution of these great brands,” he added.
