Kush Bottles Co-Founder Steps into Role of CEO
Executive shift allows more focus on lobbying and building relationships with regulators, state agencies, and investors
SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's premier supplier of certified child-resistant packaging, accessories and consulting services for the medical and recreational marijuana industry, announced that company co-founder Nick Kovacevich has assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer.
Kovacevich, who co-founded the company in 2010 and worked as COO until February of 2014, returned to the company after a brief hiatus focusing on other ventures. His return marks a clear dedication to the company and desire to grow the business into the premier brand in the medical cannabis industry.
In this move, Ben Wu, company president, will be able to focus more heavily on the daily operations of the business. "I cannot say enough good things about Ben and his contributions to Kush Bottles," Kovacevich commented. "He expanded our distribution, improved revenues, brought on exciting new products, and was instrumental in our growth," he added. "This move will allow him to focus on those key areas, while I handle the brand building efforts which require significant work outside of the office on a regular basis."
"Our vision was to not only become a trusted supplier of certified, regulator-approved packaging and exit solutions, but to also become a valuable resource for dispensary operators and growers in the medical marijuana industry. Helping them stay in compliance with the rapidly changing and highly detailed regulations that govern the industry from not only a product, but a business standpoint as well, was a focus of ours," Wu explained. "I am happy to say that we have succeeded in this mission." Through their efforts, Kush Bottles has become a diversified brand that provides wide spread assistance to industry professionals and patients alike.
Kovacevich, who assumed the role of CEO on September 15, 2014, will focus on the continued development of the Kush Bottles brand, establishing relationships with key stakeholders in the public and private sectors, while working with bankers, investors, and underwriters as well.
