Eli Taieb and Vaporin
In 2014, it was announced that Vaporin would be merging with Vapor Corp., a NASDAQ listed company based in the United States. Their brands include Fifty-One, Alternacig, Hookah Stix, and others.
Eli Taieb worked closely with others on his team as well as Jeff Holman, Chairman, President and CEO of Vapor Corp., to solidify the agreement. The merger was completed in early March. 2015. At the time of the merger, Vapor Corp. was the sole vaporizer company to be listed on a major stock exchange, only serving to prove the success and appeal of Vaporin.
The original work done by Eli Taieb at Vaporin remains instrumental in the continued success of the overarching Vapor Corp. brand.
