Full birth name: Diana Anglin
Title: Chief Operating Officer
Company: CannAmerica Brands Corp.
Years at current company: 1.5 years
Education profile: BS from Western Michigan University (1994)
Most successful professional accomplishment before cannabis: Previous to cannabis I was in the public higher education sector. I had plenty of experience interpreting rules for higher education like Title IV (federal financial aid), NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), and college accreditation standards. While serving as the Graduation Services Advisors for the Colorado School of Mines I was able to motivate many students burned out from the rigorous program to stay focused and finish their degree. It brought me heartwarming pride to see “my students” walk across the stage at graduation.
Company Mission: Our mission is to maximize the value of our brands by promoting, marketing and licensing the brands through various distribution channels, including to dispensaries, wholesalers and distributors in the United States and internationally. CannAmerica Brands owns a portfolio of cannabis brands in the cannabis space currently in the states of Colorado, Nevada, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Massachusetts. Our core strategy is to enhance and monetize the global reach of our existing brands, and to pursue additional strategic acquisitions to grow the scope of and diversify our portfolio of brands.
Company’s most successful achievement:
Creating our Intellectual Property company to protect what our founders spent years creating was an early industry achievement that put our Company ahead of other cannabis companies. CannAmerica achieved a major milestone when we began trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) under the symbol “CANA” on October 15th of 2018, when Canada announced federal legalization of cannabis. In December, CannAmerica also commenced trading on the OTCQB® Venture Market in the United States under the symbol “CNNXF.”
Has the company raised any capital (yes or no): if so, how much?:
Yes, CannAmerica raised approximately $7 million via non-brokered private placements.
Any plans on raising capital in the future?
At this time, the Company is focused on operational success. Once current plans for expansion and new lines of products are in place, the Board will review the market temperature to determine the course of action for financing additional projects.
Most important company 5-year goal:
Expansion into more legal cannabis marketplaces, national hemp finished product sales, and additional lines of business to increase the revenues for the company and to create as many opportunities for brand expansion and acquisition.
