IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2020 / Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX:TRTC) ("Terra Tech" or the "Company") today announced it has appointed Mr. Michael Nahass as Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Nahass currently serves as Terra Tech's President, Chief Operating Officer, Secretary and Treasurer as well as a Director, and has been working at Terra Tech since its inception. Mr. Nahass was instrumental in the start-up operations of Terra Tech and he continues to manage the daily activities of Terra Tech. He takes over the position from Matthew Morgan, who has been CEO since February 2020 as he is stepping down to pursue other interests.
Derek Peterson, Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented, "On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Matt for his insight and leadership at Terra Tech throughout 2020. He has navigated the Company through unprecedented times, and we wish him well for the future. As the co-founder and CEO of OneQor Technologies, Inc., Matt was brought into Terra Tech to guide our expansion strategy in the CBD market. With the events of the past six months, including the COVID-19 pandemic which forced many retailers to delay purchase orders in the CBD market, it has become evident to both Matt and the Board that Terra Tech must focus on growing its THC business in order to maximize near-term revenues."
Mike Nahass commented, "Terra Tech has excellent assets in California and Nevada that have the potential to drive revenue growth in the THC market, including our Hegenberger cultivation facility which is under construction and our Blum retail dispensary in Oakland. The impact of COVID on the CBD industry has led us to streamline and intensify our focus on this core cannabis business and I look forward to sharing more details of our THC expansion strategy on our next quarterly call which is expected to be in mid-November."
Matthew Morgan commented, "Terra Tech and its Blum and IVXX brands are some of the most long-standing and recognizable names in the California cannabis market. At this juncture in the Company's evolution and given the volatile market dynamics at play, it makes sense for the Company to leverage this well-established niche they have in the market to build shareholder value. On a personal note, I am stepping down to pursue my other interests."
Mr. Morgan was issued 14,616,118 shares of Terra Tech common stock in February 2020, in connection with the merger of OneQor with a subsidiary of Terra Tech. Mr. Morgan is voluntarily returning the entirety of his shares in Terra Tech, effective the date hereof, at no cost to the Company.
