ELAD BARAK, Business Development & Fundraising

I don’t drink beer, there I said it! And that is exactly what drew me to Province Brands. 

A couple of months ago I decided that I wanted to be part of the cannabis industry. Having a background in technology companies, I was looking for an innovative company that does more than just grow plants. When I found Province Brands I fell in love with the idea instantly – I could finally go to a bar with my friends and have a drink with them. 

I feel lucky with the jobs I've had over the past 12 years. I have worked in Israel, Mexico, Ukraine, and Canada; I've operated satellites in space, built robots, and contributed to clean-tech adoption. Within these jobs, I assumed technical, operations, and management roles. It is great to once again have a job that is both interesting and challenging. I couldn’t be more excited about joining the Business Development & Fundraising Team

I play bridge competitively and have won the Israeli Non-Master Championship. For me, bridge is both a gym for my brain, as well as a substitute for meditation. When I sit down to play, I forget all my troubles and focus solely on the game. I also enjoy nature and try to go camping as much as possible during the summer months. My 2018 New Year’s resolution is to start running – and this year I mean it!
