(CSE: CPTR; FRANKFURT: NMVA; STUTTGART: NMVA), (“Captor” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that attorney Alex Spiro and Bluma Wellness Inc. founder/CEO Brady Cobb have joined the Board of Directors of the Company, effective immediately.
Alex Spiro is a former prosecutor and a well-known litigator who has represented an array of disrupting companies across the globe. A graduate of Harvard Law School, where he continues to teach, Mr. Spiro serves as a strategic advisor and board member to both public and private companies and helps growth-stage ventures with a variety of legal and operational matters. Mr. Spiro has served as a board member of Glassbridge Enterprises, Imedia Brands, and Arrive, a private equity venture with Glassbridge Enterprises in partnership with Primary Venture Partners and Roc Nation. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. Spiro studied biopsychology and worked at Harvard’s psychiatric facility, McLean Hospital.
Brady Cobb is the founder/CEO of Bluma Wellness Inc., (CSE: BWEL.U) (OTCQX: BMWLF) which was recently purchased by Cresco Labs (CSE: CL) (OTCQX: CRLBF) in an all-stock deal valued at $213 million. Bluma Wellness operates as “One Plant Florida”, with seven operating strategically located dispensaries with eight more locations under legal control with plans to open, along with an innovative next-day door-to-door e-commerce home delivery service. Mr. Cobb has emerged as a leading voice in the U.S. cannabis industry and has been instrumental to the marketplace’s transition from legal and regulatory uncertainty to sensible and long-overdue federal legislative policy reform.

In connection with Mr. Cobb’s and Mr. Spiro’s appointments the Company also announces that Mr. Henry Kloepper has stepped down from the Board of Directors, effective immediately. The Company expresses its best wishes and gratitude to Mr. Kloepper for his dedicated service.
