“Jamin has had a tremendous impact on our business,” said Kyle Kazan, Chairman and CEO of Glass House. “Joining us in June 2020, he led the upstream of our many business entities into one parent company, as we prepared to be acquired by Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp. and listed on the Neo Exchange through the process of -SPAC. He is a gifted lawyer with an in-depth knowledge of the financial markets, in particular the pre- and post-listing process and the associated regulations. We owe him deep gratitude for his sound advice and for his tireless work in the service of the Company; and we wish him the best of luck in his new role.”

“Over the past two years, we have completed an IPO transaction, developing a rapidly growing retail footprint that is expected to triple the number of stores in operation.1 including the obtaining of two new competitive licenses in high value-added locations, the acquisition of the PLUS brand2, and the acquisition, financing and conversion of the SoCal facility. With the help of Jamin, the company has become one of the biggest operators of California and is positioned to become one of the largest greenhouse cannabis growers in the world, ready to take full advantage of potential future state or national regulatory changes. As part of this growth, Jamin has led the company’s development of sophisticated and effective internal compliance, licensing and commercial law functions that will continue to bring value to the company. Simply put, he laid the legal and structural foundations that will allow our organization to grow and prosper. In addition, he moved from his forever home to Northern California to join us Southern California and I’m thrilled for him that this move basically allows him to go home.”
