Curaleaf has announced three new hires joining the company's executive leadership team this month.
Ed Kremer will join as Chief Financial Officer, Camilo Lyon was named Chief Investment Officer, and Mitch Hara will be Chief Strategy Officer, a new role at the company. Kremer and Lyon will begin August 8 and Hara joined effective August 3.
The news comes as Matt Darin, who was named Curaleaf CEO in February of this year, has focused his first months of leadership on reorganizing the company for long term success, and on the heels of second quarter earnings, the first under Darin as CEO. In May, Darin named Tyneeha Rivers the company's first Chief People Officer, to continue to drive Curaleaf's culture and become the destination for the highest level of talent in the industry.
Newly appointed Chief Financial Officer Kremer has most recently been working in the cannabis industry and brings a wealth of experience as a public CFO and leader at companies such as Oakley, Beats by Dre, and Oliver Peoples. Neil Davidson, Curaleaf's Interim CFO, will work closely with Mr. Kremer during the transition period.
Lyon will lead Capital Markets and Investor Relations as Curaleaf's first Chief Investment Officer. Lyon most recently worked as a Managing Director at BTIG, where he covered the consumer and cannabis sectors. He brings more than 20 years of finance experience and a wealth of knowledge and relationships to the role.
In the newly created Chief Strategy Officer Role, Hara will oversee the company's strategy functions including mergers and acquisitions, international, and research and development. Hara brings years of experience as a seasoned strategist, operator, and dealmaker on Wall Street and in cannabis, most recently as Head of M&A and Business Development at Clever Leaves International.
