IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ManifestSeven (CSE:MSVN) (“M7” and formerly known as MJIC), California’s first integrated omnichannel platform for legal cannabis, today announced the appointment of Hélène Blanchette as the new president of MyJane – M7’s retail subsidiary created by women, for women.

Blanchette joins the company from Xerox Corp., where she served as global vice president of marketing for its production business. During her decade-plus in senior leadership, Blanchette helped found the internationally recognized Xerox 1:1 lab, crafting personalized, data-driven direct mail campaigns.

“Hélène is a known innovator with vast experience translating customer wants into winning business models,” said Sturges Karban, M7’s chief executive officer. “And with her background in business-to-business marketing, sales and operations, we are fortunate to have her onboard to drive MyJane’s growth throughout California’s legal cannabis market and through CBD sales nationwide.”

Blanchette replaces the outgoing MyJane president and co-founder Kim Kovacs, who’s embarking on new entrepreneurial projects.

Fellow MyJane co-founder Cara Raffele, who joined M7 in June as the vice president of marketing, will continue leading MyJane’s branding and channel expansion.

“This is an exciting time for MyJane and our community of women,” Raffele said. “We are advancing integration of MyJane into M7’s legal cannabis supply chain, where the brand will be able to flourish through our integrated B2B and B2C logistics environment.”
