VANCOUVER, British Columbia, OCTOBER 27, 2020 – Christina Lake Cannabis Corp. (the “Company” or “CLC” or “Christina Lake Cannabis”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan Smith as Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) of the Company. As Controller, Mr. Smith has been responsible for managing the financial actions of the Company. In his previous endeavours, Mr. Smith acquired a track record of providing corporate value through a combination of strategic sales-driven activities and cost-saving measures.
Mr. Smith is a finance professional with a diversified portfolio spanning multiple industries. He previously held senior positions with one of the largest credit unions in Canada, most recently managing a commercial portfolio in excess of $250 million. He gained experience in the telecommunications sector through senior financial roles with Axia NetMedia Corporation – the Calgary-based operator of Alberta’s SuperNet that was subsequently acquired by Bell – and KMM, a U.S.-based national provider of integrated logistics and network services for AT&T, Verizon and Ericsson. At both organizations, Mr. Smith played a key role in strategic investment initiatives and supported accounting functions. A former NCAA athlete, Mr. Smith holds a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in finance, with the highest distinction, from Keiser University in Florida.
“I feel fortunate to be part of one of the fastest-growing licensed cannabis producers in the country. When considering its extraction capabilities in conjunction with its production model, CLC is well positioned to abundantly provide the market with low-cost, high-quality cannabis flower, oil and hemp-based derivatives on a global scale. The opportunity to position ourselves in the domestic and international markets is very timely and particularly inspiring,” stated Mr. Smith.
Joel Dumaresq, CEO and Director of Christina Lake Cannabis, commented, “As Christina Lake completes its inaugural harvest season and accelerates into the next phase of growth, we are particularly fortunate to have a technically skilled and analytical CFO, with a high degree of operational competency, such as Ryan Smith, on our team.”
With the appointment of Ryan Smith as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, Joel Dumaresq has transitioned from the interim position he assumed to focus solely on his current role of Chief Executive Officer.
