Tedford will be responsible of the company's accounting, financial reporting, treasury management, strategic financial planning, risk management, deal analysis and negotiations. The CFO will lead KushCo's efforts to be compliant with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a federal law that sets requirements for all U.S. public company boards and management to ensure more transparency. 

"Chris’s dynamic experience in financial and risk management, along with his proven leadership skills, will provide stability to the company as we scale our operations to meet the demands of the rapidly expanding cannabis market," KushCo CEO Nick Kovacevich said in a statement.
