Calyx Peak Companies continues to invest in its brands and operations in its drive to achieve a dominant position in the rapidly evolving cannabis market.
Ed Schmults, CEO of Calyx said the following about the team additions. “We aim to be the most specialized, data-driven, forward-thinking, and experienced multi-state cannabis operator in the country, welcoming established executives with proven track records for success is the best way to achieve that goal. We are unbelievably proud to have individuals like Jenny, Scott, and Eubin join the Calyx Peak family.”
