Today, companies across the cannabis supply chain rely on Fyllo’s compliance-first solutions to navigate the industry’s regulatory environment.
Chad also serves as Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board for Tyson 2.0, legendary boxer Mike Tyson’s cannabis company, and Wesana Health (WSNAF), a life science company on a journey to treat traumatic brain injury and mental illness through psychedelics.

Following his roles in executive sales at a series of tech firms including Citysearch, Bankrate, and Epic Marketplace, Chad joined Adconion Media Group as a regional sales director in 2011 where he was instrumental in scaling the company that led to its $235M sale. Building on this success, Chad was charged with integrating three companies—Adconion, Amobee, and Kontera—while managing the combined revenue operations. Under his leadership of the new company, Amobee grew dramatically in size and dominance.
