Glass House Brands Appoints Hilal Tabsh as Chief Revenue Officer
LONG BEACH, CA and TORONTO, MAY 17, 2022 // — Glass House Brands Inc. (“Glass House” or the “Company”) (NEO: GLAS.AU) (NEO: GLAS.WT.U) (OTCQX: GLASF) (OTCQX: GHBWF), one of the fastest growing and vertically integrated cannabis companies in the United States, today announced that Hilal Tabsh has been appointed chief revenue officer (“CRO”) of Glass House with immediate effect.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hilal to the Glass House family as our new CRO,” said Kyle Kazan, President and CEO of Glass House. “As we seek to integrate PLUS and complete our acquisition of Natural Healing Center (NHC)1as well as accelerating production and sales from our SoCal facility, Hilal’s extensive experience and success in brand building, sales, marketing and channel growth will be an invaluable asset. »
A 20-year veteran of the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry, Mr. Tabsh brings a wealth of experience to his new role. Hilal worked at Red Bull GmbH for fifteen years on two continents. Initially based in Dubai, he held the position of Head of Sales and Marketing Strategy, overseeing the Middle East, Africa and Pacific regions. After that, Mr. Tabsh spent eight years as a sales and marketing manager for Red Bull North America. In this role, he directly managed over 150 team members and over 200 channel partners who were instrumental in growing Red Bull’s footprint across the United States. He was responsible for partner development, product launches, sales and in-market distribution strategy, directly overseeing over $1 billion in annual revenue.
After leaving Red Bull, Hilal co-founded and managed the sales, distribution and branding activities of Limited Beverages; and also developed Limitless Lightly Caffeinated Sparkling Water. After a period of rapid growth, the company was acquired by Keurig Dr. Pepper within three years of its founding.
Hilal then joined the cannabis industry as a senior vice president at BellRock Brands, based in Denver, Colorado. In this role, he led the sales, marketing and distribution efforts associated with the development of the company’s e-commerce strategy and was able to grow the distribution footprint 10x over the course of its mandate. Under his leadership, Dixie Brands, Mary’s Medicinal’s, Mary’s Nutritional’s and Mary’s Tails have become household brands available at major dispensaries, retailers and distributors across North America.
Most recently, Hilal was chief revenue officer at SlangWorldWide, where he oversaw strategy, sales growth and brand development for the company’s CBD and THC product lines in North America. Some of his accomplishments include streamlining product lines across brands, eliminating all unprofitable SKUs, reducing overhead, and developing a four-year revenue growth plan with a clear strategy, a schedule and KPI milestones.
