Josh is the CEO of Holistic Industries, possibly the largest private MSO in the U.S. Since starting the company in 2011, Josh has grown Holistic into a national medical and consumer goods company, a cultivation and extraction network, and a retail dispensary chain. Josh launched Holistic based on the expertise he gained serving as President of Schneider’s of Capitol Hill, the Gendersons’ third-generation, family-owned liquor store that is a staple of Washington, D.C. He worked alongside his father, Richard Genderson, and played an instrumental role in the company’s growth. With Josh’s leadership and vision, he grew Schneider’s into a massive importing and distribution company online and through retail.
Prior to Schneider’s, Josh was working for a music promotion and venue company, and taking classes to learn about wine. His wine education, from learning about agriculture and cultivation to mass production and distribution, along with his passion for giving customers a truly amazing experience, has propelled him into the position he’s in today.
Josh is also a civic leader and generous contributor to charitable causes. He belongs to the Young Presidents Organization, and serves as a Board Member of Hearts Delight, a subsidiary of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
