BevCanna Enterprises Inc (CSE:BEV) (OTCMKTS:BVNNF) has appointed Oleg Scherbina as its chief financial officer and corporate secretary.

In a statement on Friday, the company noted that Scherbina is a highly experienced chartered professional accountant with over 20 years of experience in financial management and accounting with various publicly listed companies.

Previous roles include CFO of TSX Venture Exchange-listed companies such as Westminster Resources Ltd (CVE:WMR), Jaxon Mining Inc (CVE:JAX) (OTCMKTS:JXMNF) and Global Cobalt Corp (CVE:GCO).

“Oleg is a strong asset to the BevCanna team and we're pleased to promote him to this integral role," BevCanna's CEO Marcello Leone said in the statement.

"BevCanna is rapidly expanding our operations in both Canada and the US, and Oleg's experience with TSX-V listed companies, combined with his professional qualifications in both jurisdictions, will be critical to achieving our long-term goals." 

Scherbina’s appointment comes as the Vancouver-based company prepares to launch its cannabis-infused beverage brands in North America.

"BevCanna is at an exciting point in its development," Scherbina commented.

"The infused beverage market is emerging quickly as a major sector within the already burgeoning cannabis industry, and we're ideally positioned to take advantage of this growth. I'm very much looking forward tackling my new role," the new CFO added.

In connection with his appointment, the company has granted Scherbina 50,000 stock options to purchase up to 50,000 common shares.
