Yelena Katchko, Partner and founding member at Katchko, Vitiello & Karikomi, PC, has been appointed as the newest member of the Glass House Brands' Board of Directors, effective immediately.
Kyle Kazan, Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Glass House, stated, "Yelena is one of the industry's most recognized names, with an impeccable track record in cannabis law and an unparalleled knowledge of the regulations that shape our industry's structure. I believe that she will add tremendous value to the Company as our business grows and evolves."
In addition to her professional commitments, Yelena serves as the Vice Chair of Programming for the Los Angeles County Bar Association – Cannabis Section and as affiliate counsel for the United Cannabis Business Association (UCBA), a statewide trade association built by the leaders of the California cannabis industry.
Said Ms. Katchko, "Although I've worked in the cannabis industry for 14 years, it is still in the early stages of its growth, with many new developments yet to come, such as Federal legalization and interstate transfer of cannabis goods. From its founding in 2015 to now, Glass House's growth has been remarkable. I am excited to join its Board of Directors and look forward to contributing my expertise in business law, cannabis licensing, and regulatory compliance to help the board and the executive team maintain sustainable growth and robust profitability."
