Tim Conder Appointed President and Chief Operating Officer as TILT Board Further Supports Senior Management in Their Successful Focus on Stabilization and Growth
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TILT Holdings Inc. (“TILT” or the “Company”) (CSE: TILT) (OTCQB: TLLTF), a foundational technology cannabis platform comprised of assets to support brands worldwide, announced today that its board of directors (the “Board”) has appointed Mark Scatterday as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, removing his interim title, and Tim Conder as President and Chief Operating Officer, adding the title of President, effective immediately.
“In the last few weeks we’ve seen a lot of cannabis companies making changes at the CEO level,” said Gary Smith, independent Board member. “The Board is encouraged to have appointed senior leaders who have successfully demonstrated their ability to stabilize operations and build a fiscally responsible business. This move demonstrates our support of their leadership and the teams that they have built. We believe that TILT will continue to be a market leader in technology and innovation through its assets Jupiter and Blackbird and are excited about our positioning in the cannabis landscape.”
“We made progress last year as we cut costs, drove revenue, and worked towards profitability. There is still lots of work to do and I am excited to remove the 'interim' from my title and move forward as our CEO. I am firmly committed to growing our business around a refined strategy of technology and innovation that powers the cannabis industry,” said Mr. Scatterday. “We are currently one of the largest revenue-generating public cannabis companies in the U.S. and, between our combination of assets, we are positioned for growth across the global cannabis supply chain. I would like to personally thank our team for their efforts and I look forward to the continued work ahead as we now build upon the foundation that we have established.”
Mr. Scatterday, who previously served as TILT’s interim Chief Executive Officer for the past eight months, is a lifelong entrepreneur and operator, having built a number of successful businesses. Prior to being appointed interim Chief Executive Officer of TILT, he was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Jupiter Research, LLC (“Jupiter”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TILT that is a leading provider of vaporization and inhalation technology for the cannabis industry.
Mr. Conder, President and Chief Operating Officer of TILT, joined TILT through the acquisition of his company Blackbird Logistics Corporation (“Blackbird”) in January 2019. The addition of the title of 'President' further enables him to execute on the vision that he established at Blackbird and brings to TILT – providing technology and services products at each touchpoint in the cannabis supply chain.
“It’s been a pleasure to work alongside Mark. I am very excited to continue to build this business with him well into the future and am privileged to work with such a talented and driven team,” said Mr. Conder. “We are going to continue to innovate and lead the industry with new products and technologies that support cannabis operators, aggregating valuable and actionable data to support the rapid growth of the cannabis industry as a whole.”
