MariMed, Inc.’s Board of Directors has appointed President Jon Levine as interim CEO after Robert Fireman’s unexpected death earlier this week.

“With a heavy heart on the news of Robert Fireman’s passing, appointing Jon Levine as Interim chief executive officer was an easy decision,” said Edward Gildea, one of MariMed’s independent directors. “As president, Jon has managed the day-to-day facets of MariMed’s operations, and as co-founder of MariMed, has the experience and knowledge of the company’s innerworkings and growth strategy that are crucial at this juncture.”

The Board will conduct a process to identify a permanent CEO for MariMed, which may include external and internal candidates. The company will announce an update on the process upon completion. No timing was provided for the duration of the process.
