22nd Century Group promoted John Miller to president of its tobacco business unit on Nov. 11, reports the Winston-Salem Journal, citing a Nov. 17 regulatory filing. Miller was hired by the manufacturer in May.

Miller has more than 35 years of experience in the tobacco and consumer packaged goods industries, including most recently as president and chief executive of Swisher International, which makes cigars and smokeless tobacco products.

He also worked for more than 20 years in various management positions at U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. through its acquisition by Altria Group Inc. in 2009.
