 Illicit Gardens has named Kansas City native Jon Bond as its chief revenue officer. 

As one of the first employees of cannabis tech company Dutchie, Bond’s experience will help lead the Illicit team as it expands in the Missouri market and beyond. Bond will also provide ecommerce and retail operations expertise for the company’s five From The Earth dispensaries in the state.

"I couldn't be more excited to join an already best-in-class team, let alone in my hometown,” Bond said. “After spending almost a decade in the cannabis industry, I take immense pride in joining a company composed of quality people, quality products and a strong intention toward ending cannabis prohibition. I originally left Kansas City to pursue my passion for marijuana and the positivity I felt it could bring to the world. To have an opportunity to carry out that dream where I grew up is a surreal moment for me, and one that is accompanied by an enormous sense of gratitude."
