DENVER, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Todd Mitchem, Chief Revenue Officer for O.penVAPE, one of the largest brands in the cannabis industry, announced his departure yesterday. Mitchem will be moving on to pursue other consulting opportunities that will allow him to expose more of the industry to the same successful business practices, public relations management, leadership development, and business development that helped catapult O.penVAPE from a startup to a leading brand in the industry.

Todd Mitchem of Todd Mitchem Consulting.

"It is truly an amazing time for the cannabis business world," Mitchem explained, "and I hope to help by guiding more companies into powerful mainstream acceptance with a better articulation of business practices that the consumer, the state governments and the employees will appreciate. Like I have said before, it's not a new industry it's a new way of doing industry, and I am excited to now be working with other companies in the space."

While at O.penVAPE, Mitchem was instrumental in evolving the company from a startup to one of the top-brands in the industry. As the Chief Revenue Officer, Todd oversaw many of the company's revenue generating paths, building a sales team in Colorado and national licensing development. He capitalized on more than ten years of past experience as a senior leader and executive mentor to help build the company's internal infrastructure, shifting it to a collaborative leadership format. Mitchem's business practices aided the company in achieving 1200% growth. He also built the company's robust public relations profile, thus catapulting O.penVAPE to global recognition. His CannaSearch job fair was a first for the industry and garnered attention from mainstream job seekers looking to join a new and exciting industry. Now, Mitchem is excited to branch out into the rest of the cannabis industry to help its overall growth and mainstream acceptance while lending his expertise to government leaders who are working to better understand the industry.

"It was a fun exciting and often unpredictable ride at O.penVAPE. I am proud of what I managed to accomplish while at O.pen and am proud of the success this team has achieved. While I am excited to help other companies achieve the same level of success and thrilled to acting as a bridge to mainstream acceptance, make no mistake; I will miss this team greatly. It's like leaving a family behind, but I know they will all be very successful."

In addition to consulting inside the industry, Todd is making himself available to other industries that would like Todd to share his expertise and experience.

"I've got some very amazing stories to tell about how this industry works and where it is going. This will be an exciting next chapter."
