Kannaway, the direct selling subsidiary of Medical Marijuana, Inc., announced it has appointed Miguel Gutierrez Vazquez as the new Sales Director for its Mexico operations.
“Twenty twenty-one has been an exciting year for us as we have added pedigreed leaders to our international team,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “I feel confident that Miguel will be another great addition because of his extensive experience and well-established relationships in Mexico. Our family of companies has been a pioneer in cannabidiol (CBD) sales in Mexico for many years as we were the first to secure legal import permits in Mexico in 2016. Latin America has always been a significant area of growth and revenue for us and we believe it will continue to be so under his leadership.”
Vazquez’s career experience includes marketing, advertising, sales and loyalty programs, as well as an extensive background in nutrition and wellness. For the past decade, he has been committed to forming partnerships, launching new programs, executing advertising campaigns and doing market research within Mexico.
“Kannaway is leading the hemp revolution and I am looking forward to becoming a part of its incredible journey to bring hemp into every home,” Vazquez said. “The company’s high-quality cannabis products paired with their superior business model are well-positioned to help drive positive global change. I am honored to be part of a world-class team and support entrepreneurs across Mexico.”
The company anticipates that the CBD market within Mexico will soon become the world’s largest legal cannabis market, citing forecasts that it will increase 580% by 2024.
