Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / July 6, 2016 - INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. ("Invictus MD" or the "Company") (CSE: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS) is pleased to report that Future Harvest Development Ltd. ("Future Harvest"), of which Invictus MD currently owns 75%, has appointed Chris Pearson as Chief Revenue Officer for Future Harvest.
Mr. Pearson has over 25 years of experience in sales and marketing. Most recently in the capacity of Canadian Director for Ducati Motorcycles, Chris's innovative market strategies resulted in a 200% increase to annual retail sales securing Canada's place as the 3rd highest Ducati market share in the world.
Mr. Pearson first came to the attention of Future Harvest through his family's research work with the University of British Columbia ("UBC"). In June '13, his wife was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer which prompted the family to pursue, through consultation with their oncologist, alternative treatments to be used in conjunction with chemotherapy.
"The Canadian Cancer Society reports that 45% of Canadians will develop cancer... and statistics like this are not isolated to Cancer" said Chris, "What we eat plays a huge part in how our bodies react, recover, and rebuild."
Despite several allergic reactions to Chemotherapy drugs resulting in liver damage and a halt to their Chemo protocol, the Pearson's continued with their work on organics and extracts. Both tumors shrunk dramatically and Mrs. Pearson went into remission in March 2014. The family, in conjunction with UBC Okanagan, began to research the relationship of plants and the production of these beneficial secondary metabolites.
"As Future Harvest has several ongoing research projects with UBC, it was only a matter of time before we met", explained Dan Kriznic, CEO of Invictus MD, "while his knowledge of sales, marketing, and operation management. makes him a logical fit, it is his passion for our industry and an alignment of our core values that cemented his place with Future Harvest."
