In 2018, Han joined Australis Capital with over 15 years of experience in public and corporate accounting, with expertise in financial accounting, international accounting, and internal controls. Han has held several finance and accounting management positions in multi-billion-dollar global companies.
She began her career in accounting as an auditor at Ernst & Young, LLP. Han holds a Master of Science degree in Accountancy from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and is a certified global management accountant and certified public accountant licensed in Nevada.
"I am honored to become chief accounting officer at such an important and exciting time for the company," said Han. “I am committed to working alongside the leadership team to contribute to the company's future growth and continued success while building a collaborative, engaged, and fun company culture."
Australis Capital aims to build companies through early-stage, opportunistic, and diversified investments in the cannabis value chain in the US and abroad. Australis was spun out from cannabis behemoth Aurora Cannabis Inc (TSE:ACB) (NYSE:ACB) in September 2018 as its US investment vehicle.
Colorado Springs-based Folium Biosciences, a vertically integrated B2B producer and manufacturer, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Australis.
