Executive Spotlight: Corey Mangold, Co-Founder & CEO of Orchid Essentials

No stranger to entrepreneurship, Corey Mangold started his first company at the young age of 18. Even in his teens, he understood the great risk, and potential reward of going into business for yourself and accepted that challenge head-on. 

That risk has paid off more than once for Mangold, who has built multiple successful businesses over the last 20 years, the most notable so far being co-founding Gigasavvy, a leading Southern California advertising agency. Gigasavvy has launched and managed award-winning campaigns for Toshiba, Knott’s Berry Farm, Johnny Rockets, Hi-Chew Candy, Tenet Healthcare, and Northgate Markets, to name a few. 

Despite the numerous noteworthy clients and accolades, Corey Mangold measures success a little differently. When asked what his biggest achievement is, he highlights two things–building companies that feel like families who work passionately together toward a common goal and never compromising personal integrity or ethics. 

It is with that same uncompromising dedication to high standards that Corey approaches the cannabis industry. A studied medical cannabis user, Mangold started Orchid Ventures, Inc. with the intent of creating products that are enjoyable, approachable, and the highest quality, truly Creating the Highest Standards in Cannabis™.
