LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Chuma Holdings, Inc. (“Chuma”) (OTCBB: CHUM), announced today that it has appointed Mr. Kevin Wright as President and a member of the Board of Directors, a nomination timed to coincide with the company’s expansion of its market presence.
As President of Chuma, Mr. Wright is responsible for setting the overall direction and business strategy for the company. In assuming this leadership role, Mr. Wright will focus on driving expansion in the California markets providing operational oversight to Chuma’s alternative financing, turnkey “seed to sale” services portfolio, and future merger and acquisitions strategy.
Mr. Wright is a highly experienced senior business executive, whose 20 year career includes serving in a variety of senior executive and directorship positions, most recently as a director of a private marketing and advertising company. Over the course of his career, Mr. Wright has been an award-winning director for multi-national marketing and advertising companies. Mr. Wright has worked for businesses in Canada, the US, and the UK. He has been instrumental in formulating successful marketing strategies for clients such as Vonage, IBM, Akzo Nobel, Rogers, and Molson’s, to name a few. He has appeared on TV and lectured at universities on the subjects of marketing and business strategy.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the fast-paced team here at Chuma over the last 6 months and am happy to accept the position of President and to serve as a Director of the Company. We have a strategic vision and a winning strategy that will set us apart from other public companies operating in the marijuana space, and I’m extremely excited about this opportunity to lead Chuma into the next phase of its expansion and growth,” said Mr. Wright. “We are confident that consumers, businesses and governments everywhere will rapidly adopt the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes which will allow us the opportunity to turn Chuma into a leading brand in the coming years in the US markets.”
“We are delighted to welcome Kevin in his new position and to the Board,” said Mr. Shapiro, Chuma’s CEO. “He is a fiercely independent thinker who brings extensive international marketing and advertising experience, strong business vision, and excellent leadership qualities, all of which will be invaluable to our organization as we continue to expand and grow. He has made instrumental contributions to our business strategy and success to date, and I look forward to his continued contributions to our business. I would also like to add that we are grateful to our loyal shareholders for their continued support, and we are confident that our marketing and business development efforts will result in increased shareholder value.”
Mr. Wright was appointed President and elected to the Board on September 3, 2014. He has served as a consultant to the Company since April 2014. Mr. Wright replaces former President Mr. Jordan Shapiro, who will remain with the company as CEO and a member of the Board of Directors.
