Everscore, the first direct-to-consumer cannabis marketplace, announced today that Dennis O’Malley has joined the company as an Advisor. Previously, O’Malley had served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of The Parent Company, a role he took in 2021 after the Parent Company became the largest vertically-integrated omnichannel cannabis platform. O’Malley will join Jesse Demel, CTO at Uplight, and Pete Bigley, head of enterprise architecture at Adobe, on the Everscore Advisory Board, providing strategic counsel as the company begins its nationwide launch.
O’Malley brings to Everscore nearly three decades of experience in retail technology and cannabis industry leadership having led vertically-integrated single-state cannabis operator, Caliva, through adult-use legalization in California, its Series A and Series B funding rounds, and finally through the largest SPAC in cannabis history that led to the creation of The Parent Company.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Dennis to the team as we prepare to launch our first-of-its-kind direct-to-consumer marketplace this month,” said Jeffrey Sampson, founder and CEO of Everscore. “To say Dennis has a proven track record of building and scaling cannabis organizations is an understatement. Dennis was instrumental in creating one the most-trusted brands in our industry and we look forward to working together to propel the cannabis industry into the future.”
Prior to joining the cannabis industry, O’Malley founded ReadyPulse, an enterprise software influencer marketing platform, which he led to a strategic acquisition by ExpertVoice in 2016. He has also held several executive roles with Moxie Software, Gartner, and BR Printers.
"Cannabis consumers continue to seek out best-in-class customer experiences for their delivery choices, while cannabis brands continue to look for platforms they are proud to showcase their products on,” said Dennis O’Malley. Everscore is the first online Multi-State Operator (oMSO) that has created a first-of-its-kind cannabis platform that integrates customer acquisition, online purchasing, and delivery fulfillment, all of which is extensible across states that allow for delivery. I'm thrilled to help Jeff and the team scale this platform nationwide."
