SmallCapPower | September 27, 2017: Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (TSXV: FIRE) shares rose 3% to close at $1.47 on Tuesday after the cannabis cultivator and distributor announced changes and additions to its senior leadership team as the Company prepares for its next growth phase.
Supreme Pharmaceuticals has appointed Mr. Navdeep Dhaliwal as the President. Mr. Dhaliwal previously served as Chief Financial Officer during the first stage of the Company’s development. Mr. Dhaliwal will focus on capital markets, international growth and strategic initiatives such as investments and acquisitions.
New additions to the team include Mr. Omer Azeez to the position of Vice President, Marketing & Regulatory Affairs and Mr. Dimitre Naoumov, CPA, CA as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Azeez’s track record of developing award-winning strategic initiatives targeting consumer and enterprise audiences will help Supreme Pharmaceuticals to strengthen its wholesale distribution strategy. Mr. Naoumov assisted some of Canada’s largest and most respected public companies with financial reporting, regulatory compliance and corporate transactions. Mr. Naoumov also has extensive experience helping small cap companies during the growth stage with corporate governance, disclosure and accounting best practices.
In addition to the leadership changes, Supreme Pharmaceuticals granted 3,005,000 stock options to various employees, directors and consultants pursuant to the Company’s Employee Stock Option Plan.
