Hill Street Appoints Matthew Jewell as Chief Financial Officer
October 12th, 2022
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 12, 2022) – Hill Street Beverage Company Inc. (TSXV: HILL) (“Hill Street“, or the “Company“) announces that effective today, it has appointed Mr. Matthew Jewell as its permanent Chief Financial Officer, succeeding Ms. Hinta Chambers, who had stepped into the role of interim CFO following her August 2022 resignation as permanent CFO of the Company.
Mr. Jewell joins Hill Street from Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (“Next Green Wave“), an integrated premium craft cannabis producer and CPG company in California that was publicly traded on the CSE until its acquisition by Planet 13 Holdings Inc. in March 2022. Mr. Jewell was the first full-time employee at Next Green Wave and led the company as its Canada-based CFO, from its inception until its eventual sale in a transaction valued at almost $100M.
In addition to his highly relevant cross-border background in both cannabis and CPG, Matt brings more than a decade of experience in emerging industries, providing strategic recommendations to the executive team and board of directors and guiding financial reporting, financial planning, HR, legal and operations.
Matt spent several years early in his accounting career as an auditor at KPMG and graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Commerce.
“I am delighted to welcome Matt as our new CFO to work closely with myself and the rest of the Hill Street team,” said Craig Binkley, Chief Executive Officer. “With Matt’s extensive experience in establishing financial systems and reporting, cash management and capital market strategies, as well as his strong track record of scaling emerging business operations, I am confident he is the right choice for Hill Street as we continue to execute on our transformational strategy and deliver record financial performance. I also want to thank Hinta for her significant contributions to Hill Street in building its financial foundation and for helping us to ensure a smooth transition of the CFO duties.”
Jack Fraser, Chairman of the Board of Directors, comments, “The Board is extremely pleased that we are adding another successful, experienced individual to our Hill Street management team. Matt’s experience in managing all of the key financial aspects of a publicly-traded company will be very valuable as Hill Street continues to drive its global growth agenda.”
Mr. Jewell said, “I am thrilled to join the Hill Street family today. With its experienced and passionate leadership team driving execution of a clear strategy for development of its DehydraTECHTM licensing business, along with the expansion opportunities that the Company has in the burgeoning alcohol-free beverage category, I think that the Company has an exciting future and that the potential for growth and value creation for shareholders is tremendous.”
In connection with Mr. Jewell’s appointment, the Board has approved a grant of 1MM restricted share units (the “RSUs“) in the Company, subject to certain vesting conditions. The RSU grant is subject to the Company’s RSU Plan and each vested RSU entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company.
