Flowhub, the cannabis industry’s top compliance technology provider, announced today the hiring of Dave Smith as the company’s new Chief Revenue Officer, effective February 1, 2019.
A strategic addition to Flowhub’s executive team, Dave will provide critical support in accelerating the company’s mission to help dispensaries operate compliantly and unlock business potential to expand across North America.
Dave will be responsible for overseeing the go-to-market strategy and execution of Flowhub’s Sales, Marketing and Customer Success teams. Prior to Flowhub, Dave multiplied revenue 500% in three and a half years at Convercent, the leading ethics and compliance cloud platform. A natural extension into the highly-regulated cannabis industry, Dave brings his unique compliance experience, extensive background in SaaS leadership roles, and demonstrated success building world-class SMB and Enterprise sales teams at technology companies such as Ceridian and Citrix Systems to Flowhub.
“Cannabis acceptance is a global phenomenon. There is no one better than Dave to lead this multi-billion dollar growth opportunity,” said Kyle Sherman, Flowhub’s Founder and CEO. “I’m confident that his foundation in compliance and proven track record in SaaS revenue acceleration will enable us to scale our team and support emerging legal markets in 2019 and beyond.” Smith adds, “Flowhub is much more than a POS system. It’s the most comprehensive business performance solution available for cannabis dispensaries today. I joined Flowhub to help our customers enjoy incredible success as they open or scale their businesses. I look forward to leading our expansion into new markets, while we deepen our roots in the current markets we serve.”
