Weekend Unlimited Inc (CSE:POT) (OTCQB:WKULF) announced Thursday that it is tapping industry veterans Ese Roberts as the company’s new director of operations, and Clint Pyatt as director of revenue generation.
"The company is advancing quickly as it integrates the teams, infrastructure, production, overall product mix and development from its strategic acquisitions,” said Weekend Unlimited CEO Paul Chu.
“It is imperative that we have strong leadership for operations and revenue generation. Ese and Clint bring a wealth of experience that will be focused upon productization, sales and operations.”
Roberts owns a California state license as an engineering contractor who has extensive experience with both cultivators and extractors in the cannabis and hemp space. His experience in the industry includes being the CEO of Los Angeles-based hemp extractor 333 Custom Spectrum Inc, the general manager for cannabis manufacturer High Desert Group Inc and president of Canna Candy's, CBD-infused edible candy brand.
Pyatt, who takes on the role of director of Revenue Generation, has worked for over eight years in the cannabis and hemp markets. His experience includes the design, development and implementation of manufacturing, extraction and proprietary delivery methods for cannabis in eight states. He is also a United States Marine Corps (USMC) veteran with multiple commendations for service in Iraq, Somalia and throughout the Middle East.
"Weekend's brand portfolio is about more than products; the team we are building is essential to our strategy,” said Chu.
Chu also talked about how the Weekend had earlier hired Karl Schmieder as the company’s new director of business development and Tom Wisniewski as vice president of the company’s sales operations.
Schmieder brings more than 25 years of business development success in biopharmaceutical and internet industries, while Wisniewski brings over two decades of sales expertise.
“With recent appointments of Karl Schmieder and Tom Wisniewski, and now Ese and Clint, we can manage each subsidiary and harmonize the overall company to leverage assets,” said Chu.
