Ashley Picillo, CEO of LEC strategic partner Point Seven Group, entered the regulated cannabis market in the spring of 2014, joining one of the largest vertically integrated cannabis businesses in Colorado as the Head of Marketing, Operations, and Sales. In this role she oversaw the day-to-day operations of five dispensaries, distribution, a high-volume extraction facility, and a leading cultivation facility.
