“Redfund Capital is converting our strongest portfolio client loans into equity company positions this month,” said Redfund CEO Meris Kott in a statement. “As we build our American footprint, the Company has also begun our application to the OTCQB. We are excited to welcome Jerry to our team and his input and experience will be an invaluable asset to our growth.”

Hug is currently director of global operations for Cloud Commerce, a data-driven marketing company, in the US. Previously, he was also CEO of SITO Mobile, a mobile advertising company where he was instrumental in winning an uplisting to the NASDAQ market.

Based in Vancouver, Redfund provides debt and equity funding in the mid-to-late stages of a target cannabis company’s development. Its focus is on companies specializing in medical cannabis as well as healthcare and hemp and CBD-related products.

RedFund shares held steady at C$0.26 in Thursday’s morning trading.
