Welcome to the Green Rush, a KCSA Strategic Communications Production, and a weekly conversation hosted by Anne Donohoe and Nick Opich.
Each episode we talk with the most interesting, influential, people in cannabis and psychedelic industries and this week our host Anne is chatting with Rick Gillis, CEO of The Tinley Beverage Company, a leading manufacturer of cannabis beverages.
A veteran of the CPG and beverage space, Rick has spend over 30 years in various senior positions in the alcohol and beverage sector, most recently serving as President of Youngs Market Company and before the Executive Vice President of Coca-Cola Enterprises Southwest Division.
Anne sat down with Rick to explore his thoughts on the burgeoning cannabis beverage space and to learn more about how Tinley is breaking through the noise to establish a premium brand. The two also discuss Tinley’s relationship with beer giant Pabst, how he’s been able to grow the Company since its early days and what he expects the market to look like post-legalization. With a wealth of experience and knowledge about this sector, anyone interested in cannabis beverages will not want to miss this conversation.
