VANCOUVER, Oct. 23, 2018 /CNW/ – Harvest One Cannabis Inc. (TSXV:HVT) (“Harvest One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce Will Stewart has joined the Company as Senior Vice President, Corporate and Public Affairs. Mr. Stewart will add tremendous value to Harvest One’s leadership team as the Company positions itself to become a trusted global leader in innovative lifestyle and wellness solutions that enhance peoples’ lives.
Mr. Stewart, a well-known Canadian cannabis executive, insider and former Harvest One Board member, is a leading influencer in cannabis and worked for years in political and corporate circles pushing for legalization and reducing stigma.

His reputation and experience in the cannabis industry is unquestionable as evidenced by designations including ‘Top 30 Cannabis Influencer’ and his nomination for ‘Cannabis Influencer of the Year’. He’s indeed a strong addition to Harvest One where we put people and leadership at the heart of our strategy.”
