The Puerto Rico-based cannabis company tapped former finance executive Andrew Alvis to the role, a new position within GSRX.
Alvis joins the retailer from healthcare provider Attila Management, where he led the team’s financial operations as chief financial officer. He also honed his management skills through roles at Toyota Financial Services and digital media startup McDonald’s Channel.
The new COO also spent 12 years at Bank of America, most recently as senior vice president, overseeing mortgage servicing operations.
“Andrew is a seasoned executive and leader, and we are pleased to bring him onboard at this time when GSRX is experiencing tremendous growth,” said GSRX CEO Les Ball.
Through a network of subsidiaries, GSRX acquires, develops and operates medical cannabis dispensaries and cannabinoid (CBD) retail stores.
Currently, GSRX operates five cannabis dispensaries in Puerto Rico under the Green Spirit RX brand name. It has also signed a long-term lease in Palm Springs for its second adult-use and medicinal cannabis dispensary in California.
Earlier this week the company provisionally posted record revenue of US$3.5 million in the second quarter.
