Owner Profile

Nolan Meadnis

Nolan served in the U.S. Army from 2005 - 2015. He spent time in both active and reserves, serving most of his time as an MP. Nolan deployed to Baghdad with C Co. 185th Infantry from 2007-08 in support of OIF7. Today, Nolan serves as Echelon's president while simultaneously holding down a career in marketing. He holds a Bachelors degree in Public Relations from Montana State University. Nolan's love of cigars began in the Caribbean, where he was exposed to the many types of cigars available in the region. After being scammed for some Cohiba knock-offs (like many American tourists), he decided to educate himself on everything cigars, from the manufacturing process to how to spot those dreaded fake Cubans.
