Medical Marijuana, Inc. recently announced that its subsidiary Kannaway has promoted International Vice President Alex Grapov to chief sales officer of the company.
“Alex has been instrumental to our international sales and operational growth for the past two years and we believe that this new role is the most natural and well-deserved next step for him to take with our company,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “Not only is he a strong leader but he is also a strategic communicator who has formed important relationships for the company with key regulatory bodies throughout the world.”
Grapov was hired by Kannaway in 2017 and has since grown the company’s operations throughout Europe significantly. He has over 10 years of experience in international business development and expansion and previously served as managing director for European Operations and senior director of European Sales at two billion-dollar companies, driving annual sales exceeding $100 million.
“Working for Kannaway has been one of the most rewarding professional experiences in my career,” said Grapov. “My team is my family and we’ve achieved many incredible milestones together during the past two years. The transition to this new role will give me more bandwidth to increase my impact and oversee the day-to-day sales functions within the company.”
