Since 2016, she’s bolstered her expert resume with experience that ranges from creating a launching pad for new brands through her own agency, to serving in key growth roles with boutique agency Indelible, and senior leadership at Canopy Growth Corporation.
“This is an exciting time to be a part of Nutrabolt,” stated Naserian. “We’re laser focused on delivering positive human impact – not only through a portfolio that will optimize human potential – but also through partnerships that strengthen the commitment to our communities. I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s future in a meaningful way.”
