Former CEO, Dr. Richard Goulding, assumes the new role of Chief Medical Officer, spearheading new product development and clinical testing of new proprietary products. Dr. Goulding will devote his time solely to this role, terminating any involvement with other entrepreneurial initiatives and affiliations, private or public, in the CBD industry. Dr. Goulding will focus on product development, in an effort to expand and enhance the Company’s offerings.
Kevin Hagen, new CEO, stated, “We want to thank Dr. Goulding for meeting the considerable demands in the past of being both our CEO, and Chairman of our medical advisory board. We are certain that as Chief Medical Officer, he will assist us in navigating the complexities we face with our new hemp-derived CBD product initiatives, as he works with our other advisory doctors, scientists and specialist legal counsel.” He added, “Since early 2017 we have been building our brand, consumer base, and product line. As we close 2018 and enter 2019, we plan to become a more robust company, with solid distribution and sales, upon which we can continue to build more brands and penetrate more markets. The achievement of long-term shareholder value is our goal, not short-term stock gains. We have our eyes fixed on getting to NASDAQ in the years ahead, which is a worthy goal for any early stage public company.”
