Jen Drake has stepped down from her role as chief operating officer of Ayr Wellness Inc., effective immediately.

“I am incredibly proud to have helped build AYR from an idea in 2018 to a 2,500-person organization today,” Drake said. “The commitment and passion of the AYR team will be an inspiration to me as I take on my next challenge, which I can do with confidence knowing that AYR is in the hands of David Goubert’s leadership.”

“Jen has helped to build AYR since its earliest days, bringing the company public and building the strong foundation that will enable us to successfully execute our plans for the future,” Goubert added.
