"We're excited to welcome Kamini to Viridium as our new CFO," commented Jay Garnett, Viridium's chief executive officer. "Kamini brings extensive financial, operational and strategic experience. This, combined with her knowledge of the cannabis industry and experience in scaling high-growth companies, will be a huge asset to Viridium as we enter our next phase of growth and further our mission. We thank Ms. Wong for her service and contributions over the year as chief financial officer and assisting the company in finding her replacement. We are delighted that Ms. Wong will continue the role as the company's corporate secretary."
Ms. Hitkari will succeed Winnie Wong, who served as Viridium's chief financial officer since 2018. Ms. Wong will remain as the corporate secretary of the company and a strategic adviser to the company during the transition period.
