Eaze has grown tremendously in the two and a half years since we launched. We set out on a mission to improve the lives of patients across California and we have done just that.
Eaze now serves hundreds of thousands of patients across nearly 100 cities in California. We were the first marijuana technology company to raise institutional capital and we have become the largest such company in the country.
As we continue our journey, we are excited to announce that our Founder Keith McCarty has elected our Chief Product and Technology Officer, Jim Patterson, to become our new CEO.
In May, Keith recruited Jim Patterson to head Eaze's technology team. Jim has since defined the Eaze product roadmap and more than tripled our world class product and engineering teams.
Before joining Eaze, Jim was the founder and CEO of Zinc (formerly Cotap) and Chief Product Officer at Yammer, where he worked closely with Eaze founder Keith McCarty. Jim has a proven track record of building innovative technology products and has an acute understanding of the cannabis industry. His management background and technology expertise make him uniquely positioned to lead Eaze during a period of rapid industry growth. As our company expands, Jim has the experience to lead us through our next chapter, and we cannot wait to see where he takes us next.
Founder and former CEO Keith McCarty will remain on board as a strategic advisor on company growth. He's a visionary leader and we're thrilled for his continued involvement in Eaze.
