Vaughan, Ont.-based cannabis producer CannTrust Holdings has appointed Greg Guyatt, CPA CA as chief financial officer of the company effective Feb. 19, 2019.

Guyatt comes to CannTrust from GreenSpace Brands Inc., a Canadian-based premium natural food product company, where he served as CFO. He brings more than 20 years of experience building high-performing finance teams from the consumer packaged goods, pharmaceutical and private equity sectors. Guyatt began his career with Deloitte.

Guyatt has a wealth of experience in mergers, acquisitions and other transactions including an IPO on the London Stock Exchange, and the spin-off of Sears Canada on the NASDAQ. In combination with his extensive experience with dual-listed issuers, this expertise will be instrumental to CannTrust’s financial and strategic planning leading up to listing on the NYSE.

“We are very pleased to have Guyatt join CannTrust and deepen the executive leadership team as we look towards our listing on the NYSE and beyond,” said Peter Aceto, chief executive officer.

Guyatt is replacing Ian Abramowitz who is transitioning into the role of senior vice-president of global investments and partnerships at CannTrust.
