An Insider's view of Green Thumb

What's something quirky about your company?

Innovation is a large part of working at Green Thumb. I had the pleasure of leading our most recent RYTHM Pride Marketing Campaign, collaborating on the look and feel of this ‘MTV’s Unplugged’ type activation featuring a local musician & unique music videos and interviews. The iconic social content resulted in almost 100,000 views.


Social Media Brand Lead

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.


Director, Social Impact

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!


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.


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.
