Barry Saik serves as Chief Executive Officer of Greenbits, a leading cannabis retail platform that empowers more than 1,200 cannabis retail locations across 13 states with a safer and smarter way to manage day-to-day operations and maximize store performance.
Barry leads all functions of the company, which processed $3.7 billion in sales annually, comprising one-third of all cannabis sales in adult-use states. Through its platform, Greenbits offers the full suite of services that cannabis retailers need – automated state-by-state compliance, point of sale, inventory control, and personalized insights – to run, protect, and grow businesses with ease.
A veteran of Silicon Valley start-ups and global tech companies, Barry brings a wealth of experience in scaling and leading integrated teams building software solutions that help small businesses grow.
Barry joined Greenbits as CEO in late 2019 after founding and running the SmartLine business at GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY), a global company that helps entrepreneurs and businesses to be successful online. Centered around providing a second phone line that connects with a smartphone, the unit grew to $8 million in revenue in the first year under Barry’s leadership.
Before GoDaddy, Barry spent 15 years working in a variety of senior roles at Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU) and its marquis tax product, TurboTax, the leading software solution for business and personal tax filings. Early in his tenure, Barry led the founding team of TurboTax Online, which 40 million people used in 2019 to pay their U.S. taxes.
