Bill Porter - Founder
About the Owner Bill Porter, Founder Bill had owned several successful businesses before starting CertiFresh Cigar in 1999. It all began with a background in packaging and design, a love of golf, and an investment in a retail cigar store in Minneapolis, MN. Bill noticed that local golf pros would often contact the store looking for cigars to sell in their pro shops. He listened to their frustrations about maintaining a humidor. They agonized that for every cigar sold, another went bad… they needed a better way.

That was when Bill partnered with Boveda (formerly Humidipak). Bill had more than a business relationship with Boveda; they were his neighbors. In October of ‘99 Bill moved his office into Boveda’s facility, giving him a hands-on role while developing his CertiFresh packaging. Countless hours in the Boveda lab with Dr. Albert Saari, a formulations chemist formerly with General Mills, finally paid off. The CertiFresh Cigar packaging was ready for production. By doing away with the hassle of maintaining a humidor, CertiFresh instantly changed the way cigars are sold. It was so successful Bill gave up his equity in the retail store to focus wholly on serving the golf professional.
