Bedford, Nova Scotia, CANADA

BEDFORD, Nova Scotia, July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aqualitas Inc. (Aqualitas) announced today that Kyle Atkinson has joined its management team as Director of Medical Sales and Client Care. In this new role, Kyle will lead the company’s client acquisition strategy and development of its client care program. Kyle will also work closely with physicians, researchers and allied health professionals in their support of patients requiring cannabis for medical purposes.

Kyle brings with him considerable experience in working in the pharmaceutical and cannabis industries. As co-founder and former president of Trauma Healing Centers, Kyle opened eight clinics and affiliate clinics and recruited physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, dietitians and massage therapists. In the four years under his leadership, Trauma Healing Centers served approximately 7,500 patients and had a particular focus on meeting the needs of veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces.

“We are fortunate to have Kyle joining our team and leading the building of our relationships with physicians and allied health professionals as well as overseeing our client acquisition and education programs,” says CEO, Myrna Gillis. “His extensive background in business development coupled with his tremendous success in senior leadership roles makes Kyle a unique and invaluable addition to Aqualitas and one that will not only benefit our company, but even more importantly, our client community.”

"I am very excited to be joining such a talented and professional team at Aqualitas. I am also very proud to contribute to the success of such a unique and important company based in Nova Scotia.  Having grown up 40 minutes away from the Aqualitas facility I am extremely motivated to play a key role in Aqualitas's growth in the medical cannabis space and to help stimulate the economy in Nova Scotia's south shore region," says Kyle.

Aqualitas anticipates having cannabis products ready for market in the coming months. The facility’s current annual growth at capacity is projected at 10,000 kg and expansion has begun which will move the company towards its goal of becoming one of the largest licensed producers of organically grown cannabis in Canada.
