“KushCo has always been a top destination for bright, driven and talented individuals looking to create value in a rapidly growing organization within a rapidly growing and emerging industry,” said Nick Kovacevich, KushCo’s Co-founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman. “Our desire to create an entirely new role to attract, manage, and nurture our greatest asset-the KushCo family-has been a top priority for us for many months now, which is why we took the time to ensure we bring in the right individual who can make a meaningful impact from day one, especially at a time where we and the broader cannabis and CBD sector have pulled back on our headcount growth in order to build a pathway toward achieving sustainable profitability. Rhiana has developed a stellar track record during her career, having worked in a wide variety of leadership roles at high-profile organizations, including Nestle, where she was instrumental in implementing programs to groom high-performing leaders and employees, while establishing the proper training, incentives, and upward mobility to enable transformation both at a personal and company-wide level. At KushCo, we will be looking to leverage those experiences, guidance and insights, particularly as we embrace the ethos of gaining more from less and leveraging the collective strengths of our current KushCo family. In fact, as our fiscal 2020 revenue guidance suggests, we are still expecting significant growth compared to fiscal 2019-however, we are looking to achieve that growth in a more efficient and profitable manner. Together, with Rhiana’s help, we can more effectively develop our workforce, streamline operations, reduce costs, and enhance our organization, putting us in an even stronger position to drive sustainable, disciplined, and profitable growth.”
