Canopy, the world’s largest publicly traded cannabis company by market value, earlier on July 3rd announced in a press release that Co-CEO Bruce Linton was removed as co-chief executive officer and a member of the board, effective immediately. Mark Zekulin, who had been co-CEO with Linton, becomes the sole CEO while the company searches for a replacement.
Finding that replacement; however, will not be an easy task. It is reminiscent of the situation NBA Champions the Toronto Raptors find themselves in trying to replace Kawhi Leonard. “Those are extremely big shoes to fill and the pressure to perform will be overwhelming right out of the gate. It would almost be like taking a kid out of high school and asking him to lead the Raptors to a consecutive NBA title”, says Hanni Monk, Chief Editor at CannaChiefs Media in Vancouver. “Canopy must take their time to find the right fit. I have a feeling at this stage of Canopy’s brand lifecycle they need to continue growing exponentially to stay on top of the global cannabis stage. They may need to source a CEO from outside the cannabis industry, perhaps a big player from Silicon Valley who understands how to build a global partner ecosystem,” added Monk.
CannaChiefs Media wants your input to help Canopy find their next Canna Chief and CEO! They are giving away a pair of VIP passes to part #1 of their Mansion Series, an edibles workshop for cannabis entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on Legalization 2.0.
