Published

on

When the Stanley Brothers came together to establish Charlotte’s Web Holdings (OTCMKTS: CWBHF) they only had one undertaking. To unleash the healing powers of botanicals through compassion and science. The company would quickly jump into producing and distributing innovative hemp-derived cannabidiol (“CBD”) wellness products. Today, it is a market leader with several brands, including Charlotte’s Web, Harmony Hemp, CBD Clinic, and CBD Medic.

The Corporation, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has taken a step of responsibly growing its branded non-GMO hemp genetics on family farms. They were later made into a premium, full-spectrum phytocannabinoid health and wellness products. As a result, more than 14,000 retails and over 8,000 health care practitioners stock Charlotte’s Web products, while others are sold through the company’s website.

Business Transformations and New Appointments

Tim Saunders has joined the Board of Directors of Charlotte’s Web. The former Chief Financial Officer at Canopy Growth Corporation had been at the company’s helm since 2019 before retiring. He brings to the board extensive experience obtained from financial executive and leadership roles across many sectors. His accomplishments include increasing market capitalization from approximately C$100 million to C$20 billion of the cannabis sector and bringing on board 31 acquisitions. He also oversaw more than C$6.4 billion in financings.

Saunders is well versed in business transformations, M&A, management of corporate financing, and financial reporting in Canada. The US Deanie Elsner, CEO of Charlotte’s Web, says that the new executive’s global cannabis market perspective will take the company a long way.

“Tim has deep knowledge of the global hemp and cannabis markets and has worked both in Canada and Europe… where we also have an opportunity to eventually expand into cannabis wellness with THC concentrations above 0.3%…” Elsner explained. He will be instrumental in ensuring Charlotte’s Web keeps its commitment to using business as a force for good and a catalyst for innovation. Additionally, Saunders is also obligated to reinforce the board’s governance and oversight of intensifying international operations.
