Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Supreme” or the “Company“) (TSXV: FIRE) is pleased to announce exciting changes and additions to our senior leadership team as the Company prepares for growth.
“Our business is driven by a commitment to quality. The quality of our products, the quality of our facility and most of all: the quality of our leadership team,” said John Fowler, CEO of Supreme.  “Since inception, we have focused on developing 7ACRES into a platform for cultivating high-quality cannabis at scale.  Now that we have commenced commercial sales of our high-quality cannabis, we are preparing to accelerate our domestic and international growth initiatives. Ensuring that we have the right leadership and human resources is critical to supporting those growth initiatives.”
Navdeep Dhaliwal appointed President of Supreme
Mr. Navdeep Dhaliwal has been appointed President of Supreme after serving as Chief Financial Officer during the first stage of the Company’s development. Mr. Dhaliwal will focus on capital markets, international growth and strategic initiatives such as investments and acquisitions.
“Supreme’s advantage is a focus on cultivation with an ambition to be a leading cultivator of cannabis in federally legal and regulated markets, globally,” said Mr. Dhaliwal. “We view cultivation at scale as the riskiest aspect of the cannabis business, but also the area that offers a superior opportunity to build the most proprietary value. Our philosophy is that cultivation should be centralized and standardized. The 7ACRES intellectual property position we have built can be exported to global markets. Our strategy of aligning with retail distribution partners, including as we expand internationally, will ensure we continue to maintain focus on our core competency. We believe continuing to improve our intellectual property position in cultivation and leveraging it globally will create long-term shareholder value,” stated Mr. Dhaliwal.
Omer Azeez appointed VP Marketing & Regulatory Affairs
Supreme is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Omer Azeez to the position of Vice President, Marketing & Regulatory Affairs. Mr. Azeez brings over 18 years of domestic and international marketing experience in highly government-regulated markets from his tenure at Philip Morris International. Mr. Azeez’s track record of developing award-winning strategic initiatives targeting consumer and enterprise audiences strengthens Supreme’s wholesale distribution strategy.
Mr. Azeez stated, “I am excited to join the dynamic leadership team at Supreme and look forward to adding immediate value by leveraging my experience to establish our wholesale distribution models and long term marketing strategy.”
Dimitre Naoumov appointed Chief Financial Officer
Supreme is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Dimitre Naoumov, CPA, CA as Chief Financial Officer.  Mr. Naoumov has spent nine years at KPMG LLP where he quickly rose to Senior Manager and a key member of the Technology, Media and Telecommunications practice based out of Toronto, Canada.

Mr. Naoumov also has extensive experience helping small cap companies during the growth stage with corporate governance, disclosure and accounting best practices.
Mr. Naoumov commented, “I am enthusiastic to join Supreme at such an exciting time for the Company as well as the Canadian cannabis industry. The leadership team’s vision, passion and long term plan for growth is inspiring and I look forward to working with them to drive the business forward.”
