HEXO ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF A NEW BOARD MEMBER AND ACTING CFO
Hexo Corp. has appointed William Todd Montour to the company's board of directors following the resignation of Jason Ewart, effective immediately.
"I am pleased to welcome Will to the board, and I am confident that his experience in cannabis operations and commercialization will be invaluable to the company as we enter our next stage of growth," said John K. Bell, chair of the board of directors at Hexo. "On behalf of Hexo's board of directors, I would like to thank Jason for his leadership during his time at the company," stated Mr. Bell.
Mr. Montour co-founded Redecan, which before Hexo's recent acquisition was Canada's largest privately owned licensed cannabis producer. Mr. Montour played a critical role in transforming Redecan from a medical supplier to a recreational cannabis powerhouse. Before joining Redecan, Mr. Montour spent 13 years supporting his family's tobacco company, the largest privately owned Indigenous company globally.
The company is also pleased to announce the appointment of Curtis Solsvig as acting-chief financial officer, effective immediately.
"We are fortunate that Curt was able to join Hexo," said Scott Cooper, chief executive officer of Hexo. "I look forward to leveraging Curt's many years of financial leadership, particularly his experience with complex restructuring situations. The board and I have confidence in Curt's ability to lead our financial team while Hexo searches for a permanent CFO. I would also like to thank Trent MacDonald for his dedication to the company over the years," continued Mr. Cooper.
Mr. Solsvig has extensive experience improving operations, reducing costs, making more efficient use of working capital and implementing balance sheet solutions. Mr Solsvig also has extensive expertise in the fund management business, including portfolio and financial management, fund administration and board-level supervision. He has over 30 years of senior management and consulting experience with companies including Lily, Restoration Hardware, Borders Books and Atari. He graduated from Harvard College with a BA in economics, magna cum laude, and from Harvard Business School with an MBA.
