Darryl Brooker was named CEO at The Flowr Corporation in April 2021.

Less than a year after taking on the role of CEO at The Flowr Corporation, Darryl Brooker is stepping down.

Brooker announced his resignation last week from the Kelowna-based licensed cannabis producer.

“Leaving Flowr was a very tough and personal decision for me as I pursue other opportunities,” he said in a statement.

“I could not be more impressed with the performance of the management team over the last 10 months in terms of productivity, innovation, new strains and a laser focus on driving the business to profitability in 2022. This strong management team remains in place and I am confident that Flowr will continue to improve its share and leadership in the premium Canadian cannabis dried flower market.”

Prior to joining Flowr, Brooker was President at Mission Hill Family Estate.

Company founder Tom Flow has been appointed interim CEO.

Flowr has added a number of new strains over the past six months, including Strawnana, Sour Sis, BC Clementine Crush, BC Lemon Ice, BC Spiced Grape and BC Mango Melon OG.

Under Brooker’s leadership over the past year, Flowr says it has cut costs and paid down a significant amount of its debt—in part through the sale of its Kelowna R&D facility.
