Greenlane Revamps Sales & Marketing In North America And Europe
Cannabis retailer Greenlane Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:GNLN), which earlier this year partnered with the San Francisco entrepreneur and rapper Berner over a Vibes Rolling Paper line, made some changes to its team of sales executives.
The Boca Raton, Florida-based company tapped Michael Cellucci as president of sales and marketing in North America.
Cellucci is a CPG veteran with over two decades of experience in the tobacco industry. Previously, he served as President at Drew Estate: The Rebirth of Cigars.
During his time in Quality Importers and Xikar International, he held several executive positions.
Cellucci is "thrilled" to bring his "knowledge of the highly-regulated tobacco industry to the dynamic cannabis sector."
The seller of cannabis accessories and specialty vaporization products also opted to appoint another tobacco expert, Michael Ouwendijk, to oversee Greenlane's sales and marketing strategies in Europe as director.
Prior to this, he was ST Dupont's Country Manager for Northern Europe.
Ouwendijk sharpened his sales and marketing skills while serving in several companies, including Villiger Cigars, Mattel, and Imperial Tobacco.
"We're thrilled to add such incredible talent with direct and pertinent experience from the cigar and tobacco industry to our team," Greenland CEO Aaron LoCascio said Monday.

During his time in the cannabis industry, Boudreau developed several ventures, including a retail cannabis delivery company, 1-800-CANNABIS, and Calyx, a business-to-business (B2B) wholesale distribution company, to name a few.
Boudreau currently serves as chair of The Cannabis Chamber of Commerce's board.
