JM Search, a senior-level talent provider serving private equity investors, portfolio companies and Fortune 1000s, recently assisted in placing former Clorox Company executive Troy Datcher as the new chief executive officer of California-based cannabis firm The Parent Company. This represents the first time a black CEO will lead a major public U.S. cannabis organization. Current CEO Steve Allan will continue with the company and assist with the leadership transition. Consumer partners Abbee Phillips and MaryJeanne (MJ) Scott led the assignment.
“On behalf of our board and employees, I look forward to welcoming Troy to lead our organization into its next chapter of growth,” said Michael Auerbach,
