The exclusive wholesale cannabis distributor in Canada’s most populous province is once again searching for leadership.
The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), which operates OCS.ca, the province’s only direct-to-consumer legal recreational cannabis e-commerce platform, has announced it has embarked on a nationwide search for the role of president and chief executive officer.
The OCS tapped Thomas Haig as the interim president and CEO in September 2020. That appointment was made following the departure of Cal Bricker, who began serving as the president and CEO of the crown corporation in September 2019. Bicker replaced Patrick Ford, who retired after helping launch the OCS and operated at the helm of the organization for a year.
David Lobo will now take over in the interim, as the search for permanent leadership takes place.
In a release, the OCS thanked Haig for his leadership and noted that his interim contract will end March 23. Haig previously held roles with Zellers, Giant Tiger and Danier, among others.
