Auxly Cannabis Group has added three new faces to its management team – Brian Schmitt as chief financial officer, Jason Sonshine as vice-president of strategy, and Carla Nawrocki as vice-president of investor relations of the company.

Schmitt is a finance and accounting executive with approximately 30 years of experience in both private and publicly-traded companies. Most recently, Schmitt acted as the CFO at EnerCare Inc., where during his tenure with the company he played a large part in growing the company through acquisition and helped carve out their strategy, systems integration and operating plan. He also served as vice-president of planning & administration for Wells Fargo Financial and held senior finance and accounting roles with Citi Financial and Ernst & Young. Schmitt is a Certified Public Account (CPA), a Chartered Accountant (CA) and a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder.

Jeff Tung, who previously held the role of chief financial officer and chief operating officer, will continue to serve as the company’s COO.

Sonshine has nearly a decade of legal and commercial experience and most recently served as senior counsel at Philip Morris International where he helped the company bring new products to market both in Canada and abroad. Auxly says Sonshine’s expertise in navigating the heavily regulated tobacco industry gives the company a competitive advantage as it accelerates its growth in the Canadian cannabis market. Sonshine holds a law (J.D.) degree from Queen’s University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from York University.

Nawrocki has extensive legal and capital markets experience, most recently serving as director of investor relations at Hudbay Minerals Inc., where she helped the company communicate its corporate strategy to its institutional and retail shareholders. Prior to that, she practiced corporate and securities law for Hudbay and at Davies, Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP. Nawrocki holds law (J.D.) and MBA degrees from the University of Western Ontario and the Richard Ivey School of Business.
