Driftless Extracts adds New Advisory Board Member
US Hemp Authority Board Member Josh Hendrix joins the growing Driftless Extracts team.
Lone Rock, Wisconsin — 10.20.2020 — Driftless Extracts announced the addition of recognized hemp industry pioneer and leader Josh Hendrix to a seat on its Advisory Board of Directors. A Kentucky native, Josh Hendrix relocated back to the Bluegrass state in 2014 on a mission to help build the US Hemp Industry from the ground up.
As a founding member of the US Hemp Roundtable, he was elected to serve as President of the Board of Directors in 2019, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the US Hemp Authority, US Hemp Growers Association, and Friends of Hemp. As the Director of Business Development at CV Sciences, a publicly traded CBD company, he helped grow the company’s revenue 367% from 2015 through 2019.
“Bringing Josh onto our Board is a huge boost for us,” said Edward Liegel, CEO of Driftless Extracts. “His experience and authority in the industry is unparalleled, and we’re thrilled to add his vast experience and proven expertise to the guiding leadership of the company.
As an established leader in the hemp industry, Josh has moved the entire industry forward with his efforts and will continue to do so in the future, enabling Driftless Extracts to stay at the forefront of this rapidly expanding industry as it develops over time.
“I am thrilled that Driftless tapped me to join them in setting a new bar for the industry across all sectors,” said Hendrix. “The team at Driftless has shown that they are not only focused on the right things, but they’ve already separated themselves from the pack in the right areas with their commitment to USDA Certified Organic farming, processing, and finished product development at the highest level of scale and integrity.”
“While this industry is still in the ‘green rush’ stage, we’re an established company that still has the disruptive spirit of a startup,” said Driftless’s Liegel. “Having Josh on board helps us proactively guide the company, and gives us a global vision and deep understanding of this rapidly evolving sector.”
