Culbro, LLC was founded by Edgar M. Cullman, Sr., and is currently managed by his son, Edgar M. Cullman, Jr., and his grandson, David Danziger.

Together they have over 60 years of combined experience in consumer products businesses.

As former operating partners themselves, the Culbro managing members have an understanding of the opportunities and challenges that face an entrepreneurial company as it strives to grow and develop to the next level. With over 60 years of combined operating experience through both good and bad times, the Culbro team can successfully augment the existing management team by sharing lessons learned through the General Cigar experience. Having sold a business they grew themselves, the Culbro managing members have an appreciation and respect for a company’s values and culture and don’t believe in wholesale changes for a business that has previously proved successful.
