Protis Global jumped has been working within cannabis space since it’s legal beginning. As it’s grown so has the demand, and in turn our team. In order to further expand our reach we brought on Samantha Ford recently – talent attraction savant, cannabis industry expert, and general badass woman – to drive our cannabis division.
