Kira Hurtado is a hands-on retail cannabis leader with 6+ years experience operating high-volume dispensary storefronts within strict compliance frameworks. As Retail Director of the ShowGrow dispensary chain, Kira opened one of the first licensed medical cannabis dispensaries in Orange County, CA. Within 3 months she expanded ShowGrow’s reach with retail locations in downtown Los Angeles and San Diego. In 2016 she made the permanent move to open ShowGrow’s first multi-state location in Las Vegas, which grew to be one of the top-performing dispensaries in the state under the leadership of her and her H&H Management partner, James Hammer. In an industry first, H&H Management was hired to reopen a failed dispensary operation that fell into court-appointed receivership. Rebranded as Wallflower Cannabis House, the previously distressed asset realized profitability within 4 weeks of operation. With a keen understanding of cannabis consumer demands, a strong appreciation for regulatory requirements, and the ability to innovate with smart solutions, Kira has found navigating the novel and rapidly evolving world of cannabis to be extremely fulfilling.
