Portland, Ore. – Owners of the Portland-based medical marijuana business, Shango, today announced that Brandon Rexroad has officially been named the Executive Vice President of Operations. Brandon assumes this critical position one month before the consumption of recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Oregon. As EVP, Brandon is charged with overseeing Shango’s six state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facilities, and the company’s transition plan from medical marijuana only to recreational and medical marijuana retailer through the next seven months.
“In my role as Executive Vice President, I will be making key improvements on the cultivation side to ensure maximum efficiency and quality, said Rexroad. “Over the next seven months, my job will be to realign Shango’s business model to prepare for the historic day when the sale of recreational marijuana is legal in Oregon. My partner and I founded Shango to be an example of excellence in our industry, and we must be sure every facet of Shango’s operations, cultivation and retail reflects this vision prior to January 2016.”
Brandon has been dedicated to the emerging Cannabis Industry since 1996 when California permitted the production and sale of medicinal cannabis. He is responsible for building Shango’s cultivation facilities, as well as its research and development center. These facilities are used to create a full range of combustible and cannabis-infused products for medicinal use.
Brandon has more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of residential, commercial and industrial construction and development. He was the Controller for Antera Corporation, managing accounting operations and securing financing for its development projects.
His major completed projects include Long Beach Town Centre, Cerritos Town Centre and Santa Catalina Island Civic Center, as well as facilities for national credit tenant clients such as Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, Von’s, Ralph’s, Food 4 Less, Kroger’s, Safeway and many others.
Brandon is the co-founder of Factory Direct Garden Supply, which imports and manufactures hoods, lamps, ballast and other specialized equipment for the hydroponic gardening industry. This proven expertise in construction and hydroponics make him wholly qualified to lead future expansion of Shango’s cultivation and processing facilities in emerging cannabis markets.
Oregon will become only the third state in U.S. history to legalize the recreational use and sale of marijuana. This law, which was approved through Measure 91 in November 2014, legalizes the recreational use of marijuana in July 2015. The recreational sale of marijuana will be legal in January 2016.
