Fitzmaurice brings more than 14 years of experience in accounting and financial control, serving both public and private companies
AgraFlora Organics International Inc (CSE:AGRA) (FRA:PU31) (OTCPINK:AGFAF) announced that it has appointed veteran executive Fiona Fitzmaurice as its new CFO.
Fitzmaurice brings more than 14 years of experience in accounting and financial control, the company said, serving both public and private companies. Fitzmaurice has previously worked as CFO of companies including MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd., Pasofino Gold and Mojave Jane Brands. She also has extensive experience with corporate audits, prospectus filings, private placements, financings and corporate acquisitions.
AgraFlora’s former CFO, Peter Nguyen, has amicably agreed to depart the company in order to “facilitate Ms. Fitzmaurice’s transition as the new steward of AgraFlora’s finances,” the company said.
“On behalf of the board of directors, I am pleased to welcome Fiona to AgraFlora’s management team as we continue to evolve the company’s streamlined corporate strategy and execute on our near-term goal of generating revenues from our core assets,” CEO Elise Coppens said in a statement.
“I would like to thank Peter for his contributions to the company and his assistance with respect to my own onboarding process, and I appreciate his professionalism during this time of transition,” Coppens added.
AgraFlora’s flagship Canadian asset is Propagation Services Canada, a large-scale commercial greenhouse in Delta, British Columbia focused on reshaping the Canadian flower market with high-potency, low-cost cannabis. In addition, AgraFlora’s wholly-owned subsidiary Farmako GmbH, is poised to become one of Europe’s leading distributors of medical cannabis.
