LOS ANGELES – September 4, 2019 – Shryne Group, a vertically-integrated cannabis holding company with an asset and license portfolio covering the breadth of California, announced today the appointment of Jon Avidor as executive chairman. He was previously chairman of the board.
In this new role, Avidor will identify and execute on the company’s strategic objectives and advise Shryne Group’s board of directors on corporate strategy.

As an attorney, Avidor represented clients in high profile M&A transactions in the pharmaceutical, consumer and technology sectors, including sales of companies to Bayer, LinkedIn, PayPal and Intel. He also co-founded World Trade Ventures, an early-stage VC fund in New York, and previously practiced law at Sullivan & Cromwell in New York and Goodwin in Silicon Valley.
