Bhang Taps Wes Eder as Global VP Revenue
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, September 14, 2021 - Bhang Inc. ("Bhang" or the "Company") (CSE: BHNG) (OTCQX: BHNGF), a global cannabis CPG brand company with an award-winning portfolio of products, is excited to announce the addition of Wes Eder as the team’s Global VP of Revenue.
Based out of Connecticut, Mr. Eder’s role is primarily focused on revenue generation, including licensee relationships across the U.S., Canada and Europe. More specifically, Mr. Eder’s U.S. focus is to expand Bhang into more states, oversee product innovation and new product rollouts to access more shelf space, and ultimately drive revenue growth for Bhang across the board.
“We are excited to have someone with Wes’ experience focused on building Bhang’s sales around the world,” says Jamie L. Pearson, Bhang’s President and CEO. “Bhang is already well-known as one of the oldest and most-respected cannabis brands, but as our reputation for quality product grows and we expand into other categories, having Wes on the team ensures we will continue to scale revenue globally as well.”
With roots in a three-generation alcohol distribution business in Connecticut, Mr. Eder has extensive experience working in regulated industries. He moved to California in 2013 to focus on sales in the medical cannabis market before founding Shelf Life Distributing – a California cannabis-focused distribution company – with his wife, Courtney, in 2017. They sold Shelf Life Distributing to Gold Flora in 2019 and moved back to New Haven, Connecticut.
Mr. Eder has an MBA as well as a bachelor’s degree in marketing.
Bhang is committed to making the fairly enjoyable ridiculously fun. For over a decade Bhang has delivered exceptional sensory experiences to consumers through its extensive portfolio of over 50 master-chef created cannabis, CBD and terpene products including gourmet chocolates, pre-rolls, CBD isolate, and Hempsticks™.
