Vangst is now offering a new Executive Talent service, and Jennifer Bedford will join the company as VP Executive Talent. In her role at Vangst, Jennifer will support the emerging cannabis market with strategic executive searches to recruit rapid-growth leadership teams.

Today, over 210,000 people are directly employed by the cannabis industry with a 75% growth in employment over the last two years. "As cannabis companies increase their ranks and states continue to legalize, Vangst’s new executive talent service will secure leadership-level talent with Jennifer’s expertise," Vangst team explains. "Vangst now offers exec-level recruiting to assess the complex requirements, experiences, and skill-sets to scale the needs of these quickly evolving enterprises."

“Before hiring Jennifer at Vangst, we engaged her for our VP of Revenue search. It was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with an executive recruiter,” said Karson Humiston, Founder and CEO of Vangst. “She connected us with leaders at Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Vettery, Linkedin, and all the major tech-hiring companies and presented us with so many “unicorn” candidates that it was honestly hard to make a decision around who to hire. She was extremely thorough and included backdoor reference checks and performance assessments; I felt like I had the full picture on each candidate.”

“I’ve had my eye on Vangst since it’s inception and knew that Karson was in a unique class of founders ready-made for this explosive consumer sector,” said Jennifer. “With the coming hyper-verticalization of labor-marketplaces, I knew Vangst would be the one to watch in the cannabis industry. It’s such a privilege to join this killer team and complement Vangst with a recruiting-offering at the executive level.”
