Chemistree Technology Inc (CSE:CHM) (OTCMKTS: CHMJF) tapped Sheldon Aberman as its first ever CCO. But at this Vancouver company, the second ‘C’ stands for cannabis, as in chief cannabis officer.
Aberman has been at the cannabis-centric investment company since its founding, and he joined its board in October 2018. He is considered an expert in cultivation with 17 years of experience in the industry. Currently he also serves as a consultant for Cannabis Grow and oversees Cannabis Consulting Co.
The stock grew 1.7% to $0.60 on the CSE and 1.1% to US$0.45 on OTC markets.
“Sheldon is a world-renowned leader in the cannabis sector,” President Karl Kottmeier said. “He has tremendous experience and an unrivalled contact list across the international cannabis community. With this appointment we are even better positioned to continue to build and optimize existing business and expand our operations across the United States and ultimately to international markets.”
Before Chemistree dubbed him its chief cannabis officer, Aberman designed the first licensed cultivation and processing facility in Michigan in 2016 with Cannabis Consulting. Before that, he managed Canadian Cannabis Corporation’s 312,000 square-foot cultivation center outside Toronto.
His journey began at Gotta Grow Wholesale, a plant nutrient seller, as a sales rep in 2003, where he went on to become director of US sales and increased revenue 800%.
