 Avant Brands Announces Changes to Finance Leadership Team

Avant Brands Inc., a leading producer of innovative and award-winning cannabis products, announces that Miguel Martinez will be resigning from his current role as Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) at Avant Brands to pursue other opportunities.
 
Effective March 1, 2024, Jeremy Wright, who previously served as the Company’s founding CFO from September 2017 to August 2019, has agreed to rejoin the Company as interim CFO. Miguel will continue his employment with Avant until March 19, 2024, to ensure an effective transition.
 
“On behalf of the Company’s board of directors and management team, we would like to thank our outgoing CFO, Miguel Martinez, for his many contributions to Avant,” said Norton Singhavon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Avant. “Miguel’s experience in agriculture and cannabis added significant value and insights over the past few quarters. We wish Miguel all the best in his future endeavors.”
 
Jeremy Wright (CPA, CMA) brings more than 20 years of senior management experience to Avant. As the founding CFO of GTEC Holdings (rebranded to Avant and uplisted to the TSX in 2021), Jeremy was deeply involved in developing the Company’s initial long-term strategy, which included assisting in the raising of more than $45 million for the Company during his two-year tenure.
 
“As the founding CFO for Avant, Jeremy is ideally suited to assist the Company on achieving its global objectives,” said Norton Singhavon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Avant. “Jeremy’s expertise in financing along with his contacts in the global capital markets will play a pivotal role as Avant seeks to establish itself as a dominant operator within the ultra-premium cannabis segment. We are excited to have Jeremy rejoin the team and look forward to working with him again.”
