PENTICTON, British Columbia – (June 28, 2018) – Green Mountain Health Alliance Ltd. (“Green Mountain” or the “Company”) the large-scale, low-cost, quality cannabis wholesaler announces Alison Ruks, BM, CPHR, as Senior Vice President.
Ruks brings extensive strategic leadership and business experience to the company, with a strong background in cannabis and natural health industries. She previously held a senior level management position in a public cannabis company and was a key member in launching a successful multi-million dollar Regulation A crowdfunding campaign.
“We are pleased to welcome Ms. Ruks to Green Mountain.” said Wade Attwood, President, Co-Founder and Director of Green Mountain. “Alison’s expertise in leadership, strategy, marketing, and human resources – paired with her long term experience in the Canadian cannabis industry – will be of great benefit to Green Mountain Health Alliance moving forward”.
Ruks states, “I am beyond thrilled to be involved with such a progressive cannabis company with a team that cares so much about all its stakeholders including employees, investors and consumers alike. Green Mountain is introducing a business model that looks not only at revenue now, but revenue down the road and is setting itself up to withstand the uncertain future of product pricing in the cannabis industry. Its greenhouse growing model capitalizes on the natural elements of the Okanagan environment and will produce a superior product at a cost that indoor growers can’t touch.”
Ruks has over 15 years of experience as a leader in both cannabis and natural health industries and specializes in executive leadership, strategic planning, project management, product development, marketing and communications, and human resources. With early foresight into the rising trends of plant-based medicine and a passion for health, she began her career studying natural medicine in 2001. After starting her first business in her early twenties in the natural health industry, she further expanded her business acumen by pursuing a business degree – graduating with honours – from the University of British Columbia. With a combined passion for health, wellness and business, she shortly thereafter became certified as a Chartered Human Resources Professional knowing that fostering positive, healthy, and productive workplaces is key to a company’s long term success. After spending 4 years as an executive in the burgeoning cannabis industry, Alison is now combining her education, expertise, and experience in natural health, cannabis and business to provide executive leadership alongside the Green Mountain Health Alliance team.
Green Mountain is currently mid stage of Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) process.
