One of Hexo’s co-founder is saying farewell to the Gatineau-based pot producer, hinting that he’s looking to build something new.

Adam Miron announced earlier this week he’s stepping down as Hexo’s chief brand officer, but will remain on the company’s board of directors as well as the board of its Greek-based affiliate, Hexo Med.

Miron co-founded Hexo back in 2013 with Sebastien St-Louis, who remains on as CEO of the company. The firm has grown exponentially since, with more than one million square feet of growing space in Gatineau and an R&D facility in Belleville, public listings in both Canada and the United States, and a major deal with Molson Coors that will see the firm produce cannabis-infused beverages for retail later this year.

In a YouTube video announcing his departure, Miron hinted that he will be shifting back to the startup life after taking Hexo to where it stands today.

“Helping found and build Hexo has been one of the greatest privileges of my life,” he said.

“But I am a builder. My passion and skill set lies in taking an idea to life and getting it going.”
