SAN DIEGO, Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that its subsidiary Phyto Animal Health has hired Andrew Orona as the National Sales Manager.
Phyto Animal Health offers a line of cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil supplements and hemp products targeted to cats, dogs and horses. CBD hemp oil has been researched by top veterinarians for cardiovascular, orthopedic and mental health in animals.
Prior to joining Phyto Animal Health, Orona spent a decade as a Hospitality Manager for Landry's, Inc. While there, he discovered his talent for building up businesses, promoting moral amongst employees and leading teams to continually increase sales. As Hospitality Manager, Orona was in charge of boosting sales, keeping staff up-to-date on company news and announcements, maintaining workplace satisfaction and was chosen to travel between states to reinstate struggling restaurants.
"We are grateful for all that Andrew Orona has done in assisting Phyto Animal Health's rapid growth throughout the past year and are looking forward to continuing to see his potential in his new role as National Sales Manager," said Phyto Animal Health CEO Ian Quinn. "Team members like Mr. Orona are essential to spreading the company's message of promoting wellness in animals through our highest-quality hemp CBD products."
Orona was previously an Independent Sales Representative for the company. In that role, he helped Phyto Animal Health achieve significant growth within the past year. As a result, the company has chosen to hire him full-time as National Sales Manager. His new position will include continuing to broaden Phyto Animal Health's distribution by working with dispensaries, retail stores and veterinary practices to get products into more locations.
"In my last year with Phyto Animal Health, I have seen the company's dedication to providing the best hemp CBD products for pets and that has magnified my passion for the products," said newly appointed National Sales Manager, Andrew Orona. "I look forward to what Phyto Animal Health and I can accomplish together."
