Canadian marijuana producer Cronos Group promoted John Griese, former chief operating officer of The Supreme Cannabis Co., as senior vice president, head of North American operations.
The Toronto-based company quietly disclosed the personnel move in a regulatory filing last week.
Griese joined Cronos last August as vice president of operations, per the filing, soon after Ontario-based Canopy Growth Corp. bought Supreme for roughly 435 million Canadian dollars ($345 million).
Before Griese’s stint at Supreme, he served as chief operating officer of Creso Pharma, an Australian medical cannabis company, from July 2018 through November 2019.
