Wednesday, June 13, 2018

The leading cannabis workforce management company, Wurk, names new COO, CTO and VP of Sales

DENVER, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wurk, the first and only workforce management company for the cannabis industry, announces three hires to its executive team. Ken Haigh, Rick Nichols and Greg Adamietz have joined Wurk as Chief Technology Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and Vice President of Sales, respectively. The company's leadership expansion comes on the heels of its $3.2 million capital raise. Wurk is devoted to building out its scalable cannabis labor and human capital management technology, which will adapt to the national growth of the cannabis industry.

"The team and I are thrilled to welcome Ken, Rick and Greg to the Wurk family. Our most recent funding round puts us in a position to pursue aggressive expansion alongside the growth we're seeing across the cannabis sector, and these three hires are crucial to achieving that trajectory," said Keegan Peterson, Founder and CEO of Wurk. "As more states come online and cannabis businesses grow, Wurk becomes increasingly necessary to support this growth, protecting our clients' payroll, human resource functions, timekeeping, scheduling, and tax compliance."

These three heavyweights bring a breadth of distinguished experience to the Wurk team, with each executive coming from esteemed enterprise companies outside of the cannabis industry, including PeopleMatter, PeopleSoft and Rapt Media. In coming to Wurk, Haigh, Nichols, and Adamietz look to position the company for scalability and success across the board.

    --  As Wurk's CTO, Ken Haigh leads the company's overall product and
        platform strategy, driving the implementation of Wurk's long term
        roadmap and vision. He joins the company from, a provider
        of products and services that helps organizations with business planning
        and execution, where he was Founder and President. Haigh has more than
        24 years of experience in software at companies like Blackbaud,
        Intellisync, Lotus and HCM market leader PeopleMatter.
    --  As Wurk's COO, Rick Nichols is responsible for marketing, sales and
        customer success. Nichols joins Wurk with more than 30 years
        comprehensive experience as a senior technology sales and marketing
        executive with global market leading HCM companies such as PeopleSoft,
        SAP and PeopleMatter as well as CRO positions with predictive analytics
        company Intelligent Results and First Data. Most recently, Nichols
        played an integral role as Managing Partner at TechCXO LLC, an executive
        professional services firm where he supported and enabled technology
        companies in accelerating their revenue growth strategies.
    --  Greg Adamietz spearheads the company's sales growth and business
        development as Vice President of Sales for Wurk. Adamietz has led sales
        and marketing teams in the emerging SaaS-based web technologies
        marketplace for two decades. While at DigitalGlobe, he played a key role
        in marketing the digital imagery platform that later partnered with
        Google for its first image-based version of Google Maps. Most recently,
        Adamietz led the sales, services, and partners teams at Rapt Media,
        helping Fortune 500 companies better engage employees and customers with
        revolutionary interactive video technologies.
