NEW YORK — Acreage Holdings announced the appointment of Rebecca Kirk as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer, effective July 1, 2024.

Kirk said, “Having spent several years at Acreage, I am thrilled to take on this new opportunity and navigate the company through this exciting chapter of growth. The future is bright, and I look forward to driving several new initiatives that will further bolster our operational footprint on the heels of a number of encouraging regulatory developments.”

Kirk has over 20 years of executive leadership in the cannabis industry. She joined Acreage in 2019 after they acquired CWG Botanicals, a cannabis cultivator and producer she founded. Since 2022, she has been an Executive Vice President at Acreage. She also secured one of the first comprehensive licenses for cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, and distribution in California.

“Rebecca has been the driving force behind a range of key initiatives at Acreage which have significantly broadened our reach, reduced costs, and enabled us to execute more efficiently,” said Dennis Curran, CEO of Acreage. “Her appointment as COO will focus on further optimizing operations across our footprint as several exciting new adult-use markets come online.”


“Rebecca’s proven track record of leading complex, vertically integrated operations will be pivotal to her new role at Acreage as the company executes on the significant opportunity it has in high-growth markets such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey,” said David Klein, CEO of Canopy Growth and Member of the Board of Managers of Canopy U.S.A.
