 Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy" or "the Company") (TSX: WEED) (NASDAQ: CGC), a world-leading diversified cannabis, hemp, and cannabis device company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Judy Hong and Jonathan Di Tosto to its Executive Management Team, along with the creation of four new strategic roles within its Senior Leadership Team.

Effective immediately, Judy Hong has been appointed as the Company's Chief Financial Officer. With a proven financial and capital markets background built through more than 20 years of experience at Goldman Sachs & Co., Judy joined Canopy in 2019 as the Vice President of Investor Relations. Since arriving, Judy's deep knowledge of the consumer-packaged goods sector has helped shape Canopy's engagement with the financial community, as well as the Company's overall commercial strategy.

The Company is also pleased to welcome Jonathan Di Tosto to the Executive Management Team as the Company's new Chief Operations Officer (COO). Jonathan assumes the role of COO from Andrew MacCorquodale , who is building upon his five years of dedication to Canopy by transitioning into a strategic advisory role. Jonathan joined Canopy in May 2021 as Vice President, Supply Chain, where he has focused on optimizing Canopy's global supply chain organization. Prior to Canopy, Jonathan spent 16 years with George Weston Limited, most recently as VP, Planning & Logistics, where he was accountable for the end-to-end supply chain strategy, process, and execution throughout Canada and the U.S.

"As Canopy evolves, so does our leadership team and I'm pleased to welcome both Judy and Jonathan who have demonstrated their capabilities as leaders to drive our business forward," said David Klein , CEO, Canopy. "As we enter our new fiscal year and continue our focus on accelerating growth and advancing on our path to profitability, I feel strongly that we have the right team and strategy to realize our important ambitions for the benefit of our customers, team members, and shareholders.''

The new executive leaders join the Company at a pivotal time, as Canopy enters Fiscal Year '23 on Friday, April 1 st with a focus on continued discipline and execution against its strategic priorities, including further expanding Canopy's premium flower portfolio and growing overall premium share in Canada , scaling the Company's high-impact global brands like BioSteel and Storz and Bickel, and continuing to develop Canopy's U.S. THC ecosystem pre- and post-permissibility.

To support the continued advancement of Canopy's U.S. strategy, the Company has created four new strategic roles within the Senior Leadership Team. These roles will be led by seasoned executives who previously held leadership roles at Constellation Brands and bring with them a breadth of experience, perspective, and capabilities to help Canopy achieve its business goals in the U.S. cannabis market in four focused areas: commercial sales, marketing, operations, and strategic alliances.

"These roles were developed to leverage Constellation's well-established understanding of the U.S. market, established commercial relationships, and extensive operational capabilities," said Klein. "Accessing Constellation's world-class in-market expertise will allow Canopy to strengthen our competitive positioning as we continue to build a foundation for long-term success in the U.S. market."

The addition of these executive leaders illustrates the meaningful steps forward Canopy is taking to advance its core business objectives. The Company looks forward to providing additional insight into its strategy for Fiscal Year '23 and beyond during the Q4 and Fiscal Year '22 Financial Earnings Report in May.

Despite the market reaction, experts remain adamant that the general public need not worry about the virus. “I don’t think we’re at the level yet where the average person needs to be panicking about this,” Dr. Brian Garibaldi, medical director of Johns Hopkins Hospital’s biocontainment unit, told Yahoo Finance’s The Final Round. “But I think it’s important to remember that we’re still in the middle of this flu season. And those basic efforts can do a lot to prevent the spread of this virus.”
