Following the overwhelming success of last year’s Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, the team returns to Florida on April 11-12, 2023, with great events taking place simultaneously across two stages at Miami Beach’s historic Fontainebleau Hotel.

To celebrate individuals, entrepreneurs and organizations doing amazing things in the cannabis industry, Benzinga has invited Mike Gorenstein, CEO of Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CRON) (TSX:CRON).

With extensive mergers and acquisitions experience, the Ivy League-trained attorney ventured into the cannabis industry at an early age, starting in spring 2016 as CEO of the Canadian licensed cannabis producer.

In 2020, he transitioned to the role of Executive Chairman at Cronos, returning in March 2022 as Chairman, President and CEO. Gorenstein is also a co-founder and passive member of Gotham Green Partners.

Cronos was one of the first “pure” marijuana stocks to join a major U.S. exchange in 2018. Initially, the company’s core business was medical marijuana, but when Canada opened its doors to recreational cannabis, the company jumped in and jumped in.

In 2021, Cronos invested $110.4 million in U.S. operator PharmaCann, acquiring a 10.5% stake and positioning itself for the entire operation once cannabis becomes federally legal in the country.

Prior to joining Cronos, Gorenstein was vice president and general counsel at Alphabet Partners, LP, a New York City-based multi-strategy investment management firm focused on identifying mispriced assets across industry classes and geographies. He also served as corporate counsel at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, focusing on mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions.
