It is best known brand is the Quesada Cigars, Casa Magna and Fonseca line of cigars. Its current president and owner is Manuel "Manolo" Quesada, Jr.

Quesada Family

The Quesada family has been a part of the tobacco world for over a century. When they first arrived in Cuba from Spain they were bakers. It was in the late 1800s that they began their tobacco business when a debt to the family was paid with tobacco. Antero Gonzales and his brother Constantino started a leaf purchasing company, working as tobacco brokers.

Manolo Quesada assembled a new management team around him which included general manager Julio Fajardo, Manolo's brother Alvaro, who as vice president was in charge of the company's farms and fledgling cigarette operation, and his nephew Alvarito. Unfortunately, in April 2002 a plane crash took the lives of all three, leaving Manolo to run the company.

Today Manolo Quesada works with two daughters — Patricia, who handles the company's administration, and Raquel, who helps run the factory. As well as niece Esther and nephews Hostos, Terence and Jose aka Blondy.

More than 300 people work in MATASA's Santiago manufacturing facility. The company produced approximately 15 million cigars in the year 2000.

The company's best-selling brands are Quesada Cigars, best known in the medium to full bodied segment and Fonseca (non-Cuban version), a brand best known for products in the mild-to-medium segment of the taste spectrum.
