Liberty Health Sciences (CNQ: LHS) continues to shape its executive team and has now tapped a new executive to lead its finance division. According to a press release, the cannabis company has brought in Sheri Cholodofsky to be its chief financial officer (CFO), replacing Jeff Chan. Chan is the company’s VP of Finance who was serving as the company’s CFO after Rene Gulliver resigned in the middle of last month.
The appointment is effective immediately, but still has to be approved by the Florida Department of Health. Given the company’s strong reputation in the Sunshine State, there shouldn’t be any issues receiving that approval.
Liberty Health is actively rebuilding its executive team and has already made several changes over the past couple of months. The company is looking to increase the number of directors in the US in order to more closely align with its operations and is still trying to find the right person to occupy the top spot.
Until that person is found, Victor Mancebo continues as the interim CEO for Liberty and has been able to propel the company forward on a continuous basis. He says of Cholodofsky’s appointment, “I am thrilled to welcome Sheri as the next CFO of Liberty. Her knowledge and contributions will be a valuable addition to our senior leadership team as we work together to drive decisions that are in the best interest of our patients and shareholders.”
Cholodofsky spent nine years in the regulated aviation industry after beginning her career in public accounting with the BDO accounting firm. She then moved into senior accounting and finance roles with companies such as Creative Staffing and has been involved in several high-profile financial programs that have led her to Liberty Health.
Mancebo adds, “Sheri joins our Company at a very exciting time as we pursue an aggressive growth strategy supported by our state-of-the-art medical cannabis manufacturing facility located in Gainesville, Florida. Sheri will work closely with Liberty’s executive leadership team and the board to help advance our Company’s vision and unique position in the cannabis industry.”
