Australian company Creso Pharma (ASX: CPH) has appointed leading cannabis executive John Griese to the role of director of US business development, following a global trend towards cannabis legalisation as well as recent laws in New York state legalising the use of recreational marijuana.

Mr Griese brings nearly 30 years of executive level experience in sales, consumer package goods and supply chain management, through roles with large multinational companies including Nestle and Pepsico.

He also has a wealth of experience in the cannabis sector through previous roles with Creso Pharma, as well as California-based cannabis manufacturer and distributor Blooms Farms and Canada’s Supreme Cannabis Company, where he was responsible for product development, commercialisation initiatives, procurement, manufacturing operations and supply chain management.
