Vancouver, B.C. — December 3, 2020 — Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE: NGW) (OTCQX: NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave”, “NGW” or the “Company”) is pleased to confirm the appointment of Ben Kovacs to the Company’s Board of Directors.
Mr. Kovacs was the former Chief Revenue Officer at NorCal Cannabis, one of the largest vertically integrated indoor producers in California. Mr. Kovacs is also the Chairman of a group of companies in the cannabis hardware space; this includes the international Octave & Myster brands.
Ben’s other experience includes time spent with Twitter and operating Guardian, a non-profit martial arts gym in Oakland which provides free boxing and Brazilian jiu jitsu to kids.
At NorCal, Ben helped grow the company from a small wholesale business into a powerful house of brands distributed state-wide. He played pivotal roles in sales and marketing, fundraising and corporate strategy.
“Ben is a special individual. He has a clear vision of how this industry will likely unfold, and the understanding for how to help a company execute to get there which is a rare combination in the space. After a number of conversations with him and seeing what he accomplished in his last role, it became clear that he could add incredible value to our organization as a member of our board. Not only does he have extensive experience in CA cannabis, but a diverse background in digital advertising, brand building, and adjacent industries to what we focus on at NGW. His experience from small scrappy companies and nonprofits, to working with some of the most iconic companies in the world, will be instrumental in providing perspective and thoughtful guidance to me and our team.”” – Michael Jennings CEO Next Green Wave
