LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 2, 2023 – Body and Mind Inc. (CSE: BAMM) (OTCQB: BMMJ) (the “Company” or “BaM”), an operations-driven multistate cannabis company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Josh Rosen to its board of directors.
Mr. Rosen is managing partner at Bengal Capital as well as interim president of Goodness Growth (CSE: GDNS; OTCQX: GDNSF). Mr Rosen was the co-founder and former chief executive officer and chairman of 4Front Ventures Corp. (CSE: FFNTOTCQX: FFNTF) where he helped lead the transformation of a pioneering industry consulting firm into an operations-focused multistate operator, notably with the acquisition of Cannex Capital in 2019. Prior to founding 4Front, Mr. Rosen started his career as an equity analyst at ABN AMRO and Credit Suisse and subsequently helped lead the investing arm of a large Phoenix-based family office.
“We are excited to welcome Josh Rosen to our board of directors as we continue advances into the key markets of Illinois and New Jersey,” stated Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind. “Josh brings years of cannabis and capital markets experience and has a deep understanding of markets, opportunities and operations. As we expand into new states and focus our operations on free cash flow, I believe that Josh and the team at Bengal will offer a significant contribution to Body and Mind.”
Mr. Rosen commented: “Bengal Capital has been investing in the U.S. cannabis industry since its participation in the 2013 seed investment in Green Thumb Industries. Today, Body and Mind represents one of Bengal Capital’s highest-conviction investment ideas, and we believe our focus on working closely with management teams as engaged shareholders can help maximize value in this rapidly evolving sector. I have been impressed with the team at Body and Mind and their focus on efficiently cultivating top tier, terpene rich cannabis and offering customers and patients a welcoming and knowledgeable dispensary experience. Their focus on capital efficient growth through license applications and expansion into Illinois and New Jersey creates an exciting time for the Company and I look forward to leaning into my experience and curated network to help in whatever way I can.”
Resignation of Dong Shim from Board of Directors
“I’d like to express my deep gratitude to Dong Shim who has been a board member and an integral part of the Body and Mind team for many years,” stated Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind. “Dong will continue to be a key part of our team in his role as Chief Financial Officer and we look forward to working with Dong on our continued expansion.”
