Redmond is thrilled to announce that Chris Atkinson has joined the team as Project Executive: Cannabis Group. Chris brings deep expertise in cannabis operations, facility construction, and stakeholder management to Redmond’s growing portfolio of cannabis projects. Formerly with Pharmacann, Chris has not only scaled cannabis companies from licensure to operational, but also has managed the construction of over 300k SF of cultivation facilities and dispensaries across national markets. In addition to her stellar reputation managing highly complex, fast-paced builds, Chris will work closely with Redmond’s leadership team to ensure social equity is a priority. Redmond’s new cannabis group will be announcing strategic partnerships with local and national organizations that work for equitable access and justice for communities impacted by draconian drug laws. Redmond was an early construction partner for legal cannabis in IL, and has been working to help create a better experience for patients and caregivers since 2017, and to perform the first successful dispensary relocation in Illinois. With Chris on board, Redmond is committing to our belief in the growth and opportunity that this burgeoning industry will provide for decades to come.
