Bright Green CEO Steps Down
Bright Green Corp., one of the companies selected by the U.S. government to grow, manufacture, and sell, legally under federal and state laws, cannabis and cannabis-related products for research, pharmaceutical applications and affiliated export, has announced that Ed Robinson is stepping down as CEO and as a member of the board of directors, to pursue other opportunities. Robinson will remain with the company as a capital markets advisor through 2023.
The board has initiated a comprehensive search to identify a permanent CEO. Until a successor is named, the board has appointed chairman of the board, Terry Rafih, as interim CEO.
“We thank Ed for his dedication and work to guide Bright Green through an important period of growth. Under his leadership, the company completed a direct listing on Nasdaq in May 2022, made notable progress as it prepares to grow, manufacture and market federally-compliant cannabis, and is positioned to advance its development of innovative, advanced agricultural ecosystems for medicinal plants,” said Rafih. “The Board looks forward to selecting a successor who will oversee the Company’s next phase of growth.”
