Cannabis company Aphria Inc. announced Tuesday that Jakob Ripshtein, the company's president, was resigning as it made several other changes in the executive suite.
The company said Ripshtein will remain in his current role until June 7.
The move came as the company named James Meiers as chief operating officer of its greenhouse, Aphria Leamington.
Meiers joins Aphria from Hain Celestial Group, Inc., a natural and organic products company with operations in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
The company also named Tim Purdie as chief information officer and chief information security officer, and Maureen Berry as vice-president, corporate human resources.
Aphria is still looking for a permanent chief executive since Vic Neufeld announced in January he would be stepping away from the role.
