Grant Froese appointed CEO of Marquee Health Group
August 24, 2017 - Grocery retail veteran Grant Froese is joining Marquee Health Group Limited as CEO. In his new role, Froese will lead all operations, marketing and financial reporting for the Hamilton, Ont.-based company in the emerging regulated cannabis therapy industry.
In April, Froese retired from his role as chief operating officer at Loblaw Companies Limited, after a 38-year career where he led all levels of operations and merchandising, and oversaw information technology, supply chain, digital/e-commerce businesses and marketing.
“Grant’s leadership experience and ability to manage a complex business in an evolving operating environment is a significant benefit to Marquee Health and our growth,” said Marquee’s co-founder Paul Bernier. “Our future success is based on our ability to ensure a superior end-to-end experience for the consumer, an efficient and scalable supply chain and a supportive industry that is relentlessly focused on safety and quality. He is a great addition to our team, not to mention the credibility his appointment brings to the industry.”
Marquee Health Group is in the final regulatory stages of becoming a provider of cannabis for medical and, prospectively, adult recreational use.
