Live Nation Vet Kraig Fox Named CEO of High Times as IPO Approaches

High Times Holding Corporation, which includes the long-running cannabis magazine of the same name, has appointed veteran media and live entertainment executive Kraig Fox President/CEO.  Adam Levin, who has served as High Times CEO since its acquisition by High Times Holding Corp in 2017, will now serve as the company’s Executive Chairman.

High Times is raising a Regulation A+ funding in preparation for the public listing of its shares, expected this year, with more than 20,000 investors already on board.

Commented Levin: “Kraig’s operating and finance experience with public companies in the live entertainment, music and branding sectors makes him the ideal executive to take the High Times brand, our growing portfolio of assets and our business operations to the next level. As our operations expand globally, Kraig will provide both the personnel leadership and operational strategy to bring positive returns to those financially invested in the High Times brand. I couldn’t be more excited to have Kraig join us.”

“I believe that High Times is the most valuable and recognizable global brand in the cannabis sector and I am thrilled to be leading this rapidly expanding organization,” Fox stated. “This is an exciting time for cannabis globally, and I’m thrilled to be at the helm of this portfolio of properties and brands as we continue to expand both organically and through acquisitions.

“As the leading ‘non-plant’ touching business in the industry, High Times is providing investors with an amazing opportunity to participate in the macro growth of cannabis. We plan on keeping our public offering open for a brief period as we conclude discussions with institutions and other major investors. Both the investor and cannabis communities recognize that High Times is uniquely positioned to empower the industry with positive long-term financial returns.”
