Marapharm Ventures Inc. “Marapharm” is pleased to announce that Kurt Keating has accepted the position of GM of Marapharm Las Vegas, LLC, for cannabis operations.


Kurt has been a part of the cannabis cultivation industry since 2012.  His company won two High Times Cannabis Cups in 2014, while cultivating medical cannabis under WA State RCW 69.51a. Kurt's cannabis experience includes directing all cultivation and administrative operations, managing and collaborating with legal counsel during the shift to the recreational market and orchestrating all company logistics. Responsibilities also included managing the demand scheduling for their true living organic soil blends, amendment and recycling methodology, retail and producer-to-producer sales, and extract production.   


Prior to entering the cannabis space Kurt worked as the Assistant Controller for one of Hilton Hotel's top 10 revenue properties.  With KMPG/Bearingpoint consulting he provided management and technology services to many multi-national fortune 500 companies, such as Oracle, Alcoa and General Electric.  Kurt enjoyed several years working with leadership at Starbucks Coffee Company to develop a new finance and technology organization that focused on budgeting, forecasting and data acquisition for all US businesses including the 10,000+ retail stores.  


Most recently, Kurt consulted and contracted with Microsoft, Holland America Cruise Lines and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as a lead system implementation, reporting and data warehouse specialist.


"We've been working with Kurt for more than a year on several cannabis projects and are so happy that he's taken the position in Las Vegas with Marapharm. We have close to 300,000 square feet of production and processing space and likely we are the biggest grower in the state, so with regard to management we need the best and that's Kurt," said Linda Sampson, CEO.
