Green Relief Inc., which received a $1 million CAD investment from Cannabis Growth Opportunity Corp. (CSE:CGOC) (OTC:CWWBF) back in April 2018, recently announced that its current CEO and co-founder, Warren Bravo, will be stepping down and welcoming existing Board Member John Durfy as interim CEO.
Mr. Durfy, who is a CPA, CFA, and also the CIO of Cannabis Growth Opportunity Corp., will be bringing his diverse experiential background to Green Relief, where he will be spearheading efforts to bring the company public.
“I’m excited to welcome Mr. Durfy as our interim CEO. His exceptional abilities in Finance and the Public Market space will surely be an amazing asset and addition to our already well-rounded management team, ” says Bravo. “I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve accomplished here at Green Relief, building a team that is second to none in this industry. I feel that, with our exponential growth and financial focus as we enter the public markets, the growth has exceeded my capacity in taking our company to the next level.”
This will undoubtedly be a major growth catalyst for the company as it gets ready for the public markets to raise money and grow. “Ensuring investor confidence and corporate growth in areas that may be outside of my immediate expertise has fuelled my decision to step down,” says Bravo. As a co-founder, Bravo will continue to play an integral role within Green Relief as Director of Operations & Business Development to assist in expansion initiatives.
“My true strength lies in ensuring our sustainable aquaponics growing methods advance in this new and exciting industry, with a focus on continuing to explore the true medicinal value of medical cannabis as an effective solution for our clients’ needs while bringing value to our investor community.”
With years of experience managing global investment portfolios and advising on corporate financial strategy, John Durfy will be a great addition to the Green Relief management team.
Before entering the cannabis industry, John Durfy was COO/CFO and Partner at Sphere Investments Management, CIO at Spartan Fund Management, Managing Director of Global Equities at OMERS Capital Management and more.
Green Relief anticipates a brief transitional period of approximately one month, during which Mr. Durfy will be debriefed on current operations and updated on the continuity of Green Relief. In the interim,
