MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 21, 2020 /CNW/ - Cansortium Inc. ("Cansortium" or the "Company") (CSE: TIUM.U), (OTCQB: CNTMF), a vertically-integrated provider of premium-quality medical cannabis operating under the Fluent™ brand, today announced that Marcos Pedreira has tendered his resignation as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the Company, effective December 30, 2020, to pursue a new career opportunity. Marcos, who joined the Company in September 2018, will work with the Company on an orderly transition. Henry Batievsky, the Company's co-founder, prior CFO and current Chief Production Officer (CPO), has agreed to serve as Interim CFO until a replacement is hired. Henry will retain the duties of CPO while serving as interim CFO. The Company has commenced its search for a new CFO.
"I am grateful for the opportunity Cansortium provided to me and the trust the Board displayed in elevating me from Head of Finance to CFO during my tenure," said Marcos. "I believe that the work we have done and the team we have built, along with the restructuring of the balance sheet, the implementation of cost savings initiatives and the formalization of stronger internal controls and processes, will not only ease the transition to the new CFO but also leave the Company well-positioned for the future."
"On behalf of the Company, I would like to sincerely thank Marcos for his many and significant contributions to the Company over these past two years," said Chief Executive Officer, Robert Beasley. "We wish Marcos continued success in the next chapter of his career."
