An Insider's view of Green Thumb

What projects are you most excited about?

I enjoy supporting initiatives that help people impacted by the War on Drugs, like our Good Green movement. I'm excited about what we’re doing to support expungement, cancer, employment, & education organizations nationwide. Giving back is core to Green Thumb’s DNA, and it’s truly a company value that runs through all of us.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since my first day at Green Thumb, the leadership team quickly empowered me to help drive the business. My scope has rapidly increased, & I now manage a large team that significantly influences the company’s strategy & operations. I’ve been able to sharpen my leadership skills while learning about the cannabis category, learning lessons every day!

Rich

Head of Merchandising

What is your vision for the company?

We believe in the positivity of cannabis and the viability of this industry in the U.S. Our mission is to promote well-being through the power of cannabis while giving back to the communities we serve. Americans are choosing cannabis and it’s an exciting dynamic to be part of a leading company in a brand-new industry, forging new ground.

Ben

Founder and CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We operate across multiple states nationwide, so the biggest technical challenge can be the lack of clarity on what can and cannot be done. Each state requires different technological, both hardware and software, needs. This requires complete flexibility and communication between all parties involved.
