Executive Search & Advisory Firm opens Third Location on West Coast
Wynwood, Miami, FL: Protis Global is pleased to announce that Samantha Ford has joined forces with the firm, expanding their offices to a third location in the Bay Area. Samantha brings over 20 years of established relationships from Wall Street to growth sectors, nationally.
Bert Miller, CEO of Protis Global, commented, “We are thrilled to have the expertise and deep relationships that Samantha brings to our 23 plus years of successfully meeting the needs of our corporate clients in the FMCG space delivering talent and advisory primarily in Food, Beverage and Cannabis industries. She has developed a strong foothold with a keen understanding of the burgeoning cannabis industry in the US and Canada. This dovetails extremely well with our existing practice and methodology in consulting and filling critical positions for our clients as their companies enter new phases of growth.”
Samantha has a proven track record of adding value in new growth sectors, advising both corporate clients and their potential prospects on the merits and opportunity of making a move into a rewarding new role with exciting companies vying for market leadership.
She is also helping form an organization in The Bay Area, Women Leaders in Cannabis the major focus of which will be to connect established women leaders in cannabis – particularly founders, investors, policy makers and other industry professionals. The group is in the early stages of planning, but the goal is to bring women together for events with high-level decision makers from government agencies and the industry. Their mission is to provide a network of support and connections to serve them as they lead in areas of regulation, compliance, public policy, political support, C-level and Board involvement.
“I’ve known Bert for 20 years. He’s built a fantastic business with an exceptional team. He works hard and he likes to have fun, which is key for me. When I realized that his deep relationships and long-term connections in Food & Beverage and Wine & Spirits could help me leverage my relationships and better serve my clients looking to rapidly scale their organizations effectively, it was a no-brainer to partner with him and the Protis Global team.”
This will be the third location for Protis Global, whose headquarters are in the every bustling Wynwood Art District in Miami with a second location in Indianapolis, building a stronger presence across the US. Miller is excited to have a West Coast presence and said, “With our capabilities and resources, we aim to partner with fast growing companies to help them grow quickly (and effectively) by attracting the best talent as well as advising on the best structure and distribution strategy.”
