SAN DIEGO, Oct. 31, 2018 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), ), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that its subsidiary Kannaway®, the first direct selling company to offer cannabidiol (CBD) hemp botanical products, has attracted new leadership to its Brand Ambassador base. The company is proud to announce that Gordon Oswald and Glade Poulsen have joined the company, both bringing their vast, decade-spanning successes in the direct selling industry to the team.
Both of these new Kannaway® Brand Ambassadors will be working with Randy Schroeder. He has been a leader with Kannaway® for several years and has worked his way to earn Crown Ambassador Elite rank. He has been recognized numerous times for his dedication to educating others about Kannaway’s® CBD hemp oil products.
“There is no such thing as independent success in Kannaway. We achieve the most when we put our heads together and use our collaborative knowledge to find creative solutions,” Schroeder said. “Gordon and Glade have a combined 50 years of experience in the direct selling industry and their efforts have helped generate over three billion dollars in product sales and distribution for some of the finest companies in the direct selling industry.”
Glade Poulsen previously worked with Schroeder in building almost the entirety of the Asian business, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and later China, for another direct selling company. Together, they were able to achieve over $100 million annually in sales. Poulsen also became the prime driver of the European business for another multi-national direct selling company. He has a keen talent for bridging Western and Eastern cultures with time-tested business practices and relationship skills.
“It’s an honor to work alongside some of the greatest in the direct selling industry and open up this emerging wellness alternative business to new markets around the world,” Poulsen said. “I look forward to bringing these beneficial products to millions of people and help increase access to CBD worldwide.”
Gordon Oswald has more than 20 years of experience in both B2B and B2C sales as a leader, has a strong history of exceeding sales targets for services and products, and is responsible for generating over $1 billion in revenue during that time. He is also a notable leader in the direct selling industry, leading the domestic and international successes of two prominent personal care product companies.
“I’ve tackled projects big and small all around the world and this opportunity with Kannaway is especially exciting because of the developing industry that hemp oil products will offer consumers for generations to come,” Oswald said. “The Eastern world already understands the benefits of holistic, natural wellness so our job will be a matter of positioning and understanding the needs of their people, who just like us, want to feel and look their best every day.”
Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder said, “These gentlemen will represent our company well and we could not be more excited about the future of Kannaway. We are confident that their leadership will pave the path for the company’s continued growth and success.”
