Ryan G. Smith
Ryan G. Smith is the CEO and Co-founder of LeafLink, the b2p platform that simplified the wholesale cannabis supply chain for brands, distributors, and retailers in 30 markets. Smith brings experience in creating and managing B2B firms and online marketplace investment in highly-regulated spaces as LeafLink’s Chief Executive Officer.
The cannabis industry was nascent in 2015, lacking the same tools and technologies as more established sectors. Ryan and co-founder, Zach Silverman, saw an opportunity to leverage e-commerce marketplace dynamics as a way to create efficiencies for businesses in the space. Since then, LeafLink has built solutions that automate the workflows required for wholesale cannabis orders to be submitted, fulfilled, and purchased in a single, integrated experience.
