(OTC:NUGL) (the “Company”), the cannabis industry’s new standard of technology, today announces the addition of James Jordan of the Southern California Business and Investment Group (“SCCBIG”) as its vice president of strategic relations.
Jordan is a well-known business leader in the cannabis space and founder of SCCBIG, a networking group for cannabis companies based in Los Angeles, California.
“James has already made a huge impact on NUGL,” CEO Brandon Vargas said. “We have big things in the works, but it’s also the small things that make it happen. We look at every profile that gets set up in our system as another building block for the company. James works at a top level and in the trenches, which is why we think he’s a great fit.”
Jordan is a seasoned entrepreneur with a background in multiple industries. Since 2013 he has specialized in business development and technology in the cannabis space, building teams created specifically for cannabis operations and securing over $10 million in seed funds for start-ups. Jordan currently sits on the advisory board of private equity firm Gold Stalk Investments and advises multiple companies in the Southern California market for start-up and launch strategies. He is also the founding member of the Southern California Business and Investment Group (SCCBIG). Comprised of more than 3,000 members and hundreds of cannabis companies, SCCBIG has become the largest cannabis monthly business meetup in California and is a leader in the local cannabis education space.
“NUGL presented their platform at one of our events,” Jordan said. “I saw the reaction from our crowd and knew this was something I wanted to get involved with. NUGL is relevant and gives brands and services in the cannabis space the tools to become a successful business and grow.”
NUGL is launching many new features, such as the ability to claim a profile, on a weekly level ahead of schedule.
“Our user base is growing. This means we need to support the community and continue to build tools that are relevant to the industry and support James and the team’s efforts,” Vargas said.
