GMR Executive Spotlight Q&A:

Most successful professional accomplishment before cannabis: I started my career as a CPA with KPMG in Cape Town specializing in organizational development before joining the world’s largest Staffing Executive Search firm. I launched the company’s Tech Recruitment division in Australia and eventually became Managing Director of Executive Search in the USA. I have more than 20 years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies searching for and placing executives all over the world, from South Africa, Australia, Singapore, across the US and Canada.  

Company Mission:  My passion for finding exceptional talent and my curiosity to hunt down emerging opportunities led me to discover the unmet talent needs of the cannabis industry.  The mission for my company is to be the world’s premier Staffing and Executive Search firm for the cannabis industry.  Cannabizteam and CannabisTEMP are currently placing talent on a direct hire basis in the US, Canada and Europe. 

Company’s most successful achievement:  CannabizTeam has placed exceptionally talented women and men in leadership roles across the cannabis industry and we are helping build this industry from the ground up. I’m proud of expanding both of my companies CannabizTeam and CannabizTemp to give our clients a competitive advantage as the cannabis industry continues to expand.   

Any plans on raising capital in the future?  Potentially 

Most important company 5 year goal:  My goal for company and brands over next 5 years is to continue our expansion internationally to become the leading global staffing solution in the cannabis industry. In addition to offices in other target US cities, our initial international targets include offices in the UK and Canada.
