Stability Growth, the largest cannabis cultivator in Oklahoma by production capacity and facility size, has named David Lewis as its chief operating officer.
In a press statement, the company said that it plans to hire 20 additional full-time employees.
“David Lewis is as talented a senior executive as there is. He brings our expanding leadership team incredible insight in deal-making and public policy, as well as day-to-day operational expertise in human capital management and corporate governance,” Stability Chief Executive Officer Denver Kitch stated.
Lewis most recently served as vice president of franchising for international staffing firm Express Employment Professionals, where he served since 2001. Lewis was responsible for expansion to new markets and supported corporate development initiatives.
He also served on the board of directors of The Barre Code, a female-focused nationwide fitness brand with 50 locations.
Lewis holds a bachelor’s degree from Southern Nazarene University, an MBA from Columbia Business School in New York City, and an MBA from London Business School in the United Kingdom.
“I believed in Stability first as an investor and advisor, so the opportunity to now join the leadership team as we expand Stability Growth’s market leadership in cannabis cultivation and distribution is truly exciting. From our unmatched 85,000 square foot indoor cultivation facility, we stand poised to firmly root Stability as the dominant brand in this market, while we plant the seeds of expansion to new markets,” Lewis stated.
Stability Growth plans to hire 20 more full-time workers as the company prepares to expand to new markets.
“We continue to invest not just in infrastructure and facilities, but people as well. In addition to the hiring of David Lewis as chief operating officer, Stability Growth is adding 20 additional full-time staff in roles including cultivation, finance and customer service. This will double our full-time employee count to more than 40 people,” CEO Kitch noted.
Stability has more than 85,000 square feet of indoor cultivation space in Oklahoma. The company’s subsidiary, Stability Processing, produces products including cartridges as well as a diverse line of pre-rolls, tinctures, dabs, and concentrates.
