Bold, Determined and Experienced in the Cannabis & Psychedelics Industries
We are a team of seasoned retained executive search professionals, consultants, and a lawyer who identified a need in the cannabis industry for recruitment, consulting, executive search and business strategy resources. Our backgrounds have prepared us exceptionally well to successfully assist our cannabis clients’ efforts to elevate their brands and to ensure businesses can succeed in the long-term in this exciting new industry.
I’m a father, a husband, a trailblazer, and Co-founder and CEO of Hunter + Esquire. My professional background before launching H+E was entirely in retained executive search for 18 years in MedTech/Pharma (15 yrs) and Food and Adult Beverage CPG (3 yrs). My deep knowledge of those highly regulated and nuanced industries has helped H+E significantly understand the needs and wants of our cannabis clients. My deep and genuine networks within those industries have helped us deliver that rare talent “unicorn” our clients desire to fit their particular needs. My client-first approach helps us provide a very customized, white-glove, headhunter treatment to client and candidate.
I’m a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, Co-founder, COO, and General Counsel of H+E. My professional background as an attorney allows H+E to provide a higher level of excellence to our clients through meticulous processes and problem-solving. My entrepreneurial experience, developed when I was COO & General Counsel for a startup, allows H+E to understand many of our clients’ challenges firsthand, such as wearing many hats and having too much on your plate. A large part of my prior role as COO & GC of a startup was recruiting nationally and internationally, which I found I not only enjoyed but excelled at. That experience over seven years allows me (and H+E) to have a deep understanding of each part of the recruitment process.
I am a father and accomplished entrepreneur and consultant with over 25 years of success in cannabis, wine, craft beer, spirits, food & beverage, CPG, FMCG, retail, solar, wellness, and yoga. Joining H + E has allowed me to leverage my extensive experience in international business, sales, and marketing. I provide valuable cannabis advisement and strategic guidance for a startup to midcap similar-sector companies looking for expertise across a myriad of business and operational issues. My love for the plant, coupled with my passion for discovering what makes businesses tick and how to prepare for the future, provides our clients with a truly unique and meaningful experience.
