Intellicig, the electronic cigarette company, has won a number of UK awards and accolades, but success is also being recognised abroad. Yassine Chaib, who heads up Intellicig France, has been chosen as ‘Entrepreneur of the year’ and will receive his award from the Mayor of Avignon this month.
Yassine spent six months working at Intellicig HQ in the UK in order to become experienced and knowledgeable in this new industry that combines Bioscience with micro-technology. He then moved back to France and began to grow the business in line with a strategic development plan. Working closely with Intellicig France Director, Jean-Louis Conte, Yassine has been able to expand the business across various platforms, including their ecommerce website, retail and pharmacy outlets, and their ‘bricks and mortar’ flagship, Intellicig Electronic Cigarette Boutique in Avignon. The shop is the first of a retail chain set to roll out across the whole of France in selected locations. It is proving very popular and successful with French smokers who are keen to make the transition away from traditional tobacco cigarettes.
Yassine commented, “The Intellicig Boutique has created a great amount of interest which has been reflected in sales figures for the shop and the website. We have been featured in news media and economic publications for what we have achieved in a relatively short time and to be chosen as Entrepreneur of the year is a great honour that I must share with our staff, particularly Jean-Louis. We have all put in long hours and hard work to make this happen; having such a good product and excellent support from the Intellicig UK team will ensure a bright and secure future.”
The success in France is another chapter in the book for CN Creative, Intellicig’s parent company, which now has trade partners in 26 countries. This year should see another phenomenal expansion as the Intellicig brand continues to be first choice for those seeking a UK Made product with the highest pedigree. Even though some ‘e-liquid’ imported from the far east might be cheaper, discerning buyers are choosing Intellicig’s ECOpure for the reassurance of a product manufactured in a Bioscience laboratory using Ph Eur (European Pharmacopoeia) nicotine. The guarantee of quality and purity has maintained ECOpure’s status as industry leader for over three years and looks set to continue.
