Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 26, 2020) - Red Light Holland Corp. (CSE: TRIP to commence trading on May 28) ("Red Light Holland" or the "Company") a company focused on the recreational truffles market, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Bruce Linton, one of the world's foremost executives in the cannabis industry, as the Chairman of its Advisory Board. Mr. Linton has significant experience helping companies transition from a tightly regulated medical market to a robust recreational market. Mr. Linton is the founder and former CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth"). Under Mr. Linton's leadership, Canopy Growth was the first cannabis producing company in North America to be listed on a major stock exchange (TSX) and included on a major stock index (S&P/TSX Composite Index). Canopy Growth was also the first cannabis-producing company to list on the New York Stock Exchange. Mr. Linton has developed a global network of contacts in the regulated substance industry, along with a deep understanding of emerging markets, both of which Red Light Holland hopes to leverage as it positions itself for expansion into the recreational truffles market.
"We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Linton serve as the Chairman of the Advisory Board. He is a visionary with a vast global network of connections, and the business acumen necessary to assist Red Light Holland in developing new business opportunities," said Todd Shapiro, the Chief Executive Officer, Chairman, and Director of the Company.
Bruce Linton added, "I've always liked Todd. He has a strong work ethic, and takes pride in being genuine and delivering on his promises. Red Light Holland's progress to date, including its receipt of approval to list on the CSE, is another example of the strong leadership I am proud to back. As an early investor in Todd's vision, and Red Light Holland, I am looking forward to mentoring Todd and advising his strong team in this emerging psychedelic space."
