ALMONTE, ON, Jan. 8, 2019 /CNW/ - 3 Sixty Secure Corp. ("3Sixty" or the "Company"), a provider of premium security services and a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd., is growing again. Following its recent acquisition of Total Cannabis Security Solutions Inc. ("TCSS") and reverse takeover of Petro Vista Energy Corp. (the "RTO Transaction"), Thomas Gerstenecker, CEO and Founder of 3Sixty, announces the addition of new senior staff members to its executive team. In addition to the appointment of David Hyde as President and Neil Weaver as Chief Commercial Officer in connection with the completion of the RTO Transaction, the Company is pleased to announce the addition of Jeff Hannah as the Director of Consulting Services. All top performers in their own right, when combined with our existing team, management expects these additions to create an even more dynamic, forward thinking strategic organization committed to business development, growth and brand protection for all of our clients.
David Hyde is widely regarded as one of Canada's top cannabis security specialists and is regularly called upon to comment on security and cannabis regulation topics on major TV networks, radio stations and in national print media. He has worked on over 450 cannabis applications, including over 80 federally licensed sites (over 50% of all license holders). In 2013, David founded David Hyde & Associates, Canada's most experienced and successful cannabis security advisory firm entering 2019 with an overall team of over 20 in-house and contract staff members, which firm was acquired by TCSS prior to its acquisition by 3Sixty.
Neil Weaver brings almost 40 years of extensive law enforcement and security experience including senior positions in corporate environments and within highly regulated industries with very successful achievements in private business. He was previously the Director of Corporate and Nuclear Security at Ontario Power Generation and prior to its recent merger with 3 Sixty Secure Corp., Neil was the Chief Executive Officer of TCSS.
Jeff Hannah is a security and risk management professional with more than 15 years of experience. As a security practitioner, Jeff worked primarily in commercial property management. He secured a large and complex mixed-use retail facility and was responsible for supporting the loss prevention and security programs for a number of North America's premier retailers. Jeff previously owned and was the principal consultant of Jeff Hannah and Associates, a leading cannabis security consulting firm.
"We are thrilled to welcome David, Neil and Jeff to the Company as we expand our business during this exciting period of growth for our industry," said Thomas Gerstenecker, CEO and Founder of 3Sixty. "We are adding top talent who understand the unique challenges that come with the secure service industry and particularly that of the cannabis sector. These new additions will help support our growth and allow us to continue delivering the highest standard of service in the security sector."
"Knowing that we have secured such respected people to grow with us at 3 Sixty Secure Corp. is not only exciting but also confirms that our goal of providing an elite platform of integrated services and business solutions is the right commitment, at the right time, for the success of all of our clients.
