Given Malone’s experience navigating the evolving regulated cannabis industry, he will ensure compliance and corporate governance are strictly adhered to at Shryne Group. Malone has advised several cannabis startups, helping them with strategic planning in the context of complex regulatory frameworks. Additionally, Malone has counseled both businesses and government agencies on cannabis regulations.

Commenting on the appointment, Malone told Benzinga, “Shryne Group’s founders came together for the opportunity to shape this fast-growing industry. I am honored to be part of a team that is trying to build not just a business, but a legacy.”
