New Board Appointments At CBD Firm Voyager

-

SCOTTISH CBD firm Voyager has announced three key appointments as it targets fresh distribution channels for its popular range of products and prepares to list on the pan-European Aquis Growth Market in June.

The Perth-based firm set-up in November 2020 by former Zoetic International CEO Nick Tulloch, has appointed two new non-executive directors and a head of sales.

Jill Overland and Nikki Cooper will shortly join the board, while Mark Underwood as head of sales has been charged with finding new outlets for Voyager’s CBD and hemp seed oil products, which are available through its own online portal and more than 20 third-party websites.

Ms Overland has more than 25 years’ experience working in senior finance roles and is currently responsible for finance and corporate services at Cuadrilla. 

Ms Cooper is a qualified solicitor and chartered company secretary, whose career to date has spanned multiple roles, including as a general counsel at Ora Capital Partners, and in corporate finance at N+1 Brewin. 

She also founded her own health supplement brand, Inner Me Limited, following her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis in 2009. The brand successfully gained entry into major retailers, including Boots, Holland and Barrett, Selfridges, Ocado, and on the free-to-air television shopping channel QVC.

Mr Underwood has spent most of his career implementing sales strategies for several blue-chip companies, and was most recently UK sales director in a firm specialising in the CBD market  in the health and wellbeing industry. 

Voyager chairman, Eric Boyle, said the appointments “reflect our robust approach to assurance and compliance as the strong foundations upon which we are building the brand and the business.”

In February, Voyager raised £874,000 through an oversubscribed crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs, and a further £741,000 in April through a private fundraise, including a commitment of £100,000 from Greencare Capital plc, the Aquis-listed investment company focused on medicinal cannabis and related areas.
