Chris Walsh stepping down as MJBiz CEO

MJBiz CEO Chris Walsh, the company’s founding editor and a leading authority on the marijuana industry, is leaving the pioneering cannabis publishing and trade show business in January.

His departure – following more than a decade with the company – comes nearly a year after Denver-based MJBiz was acquired by Emerald X for $120 million in cash plus potential earnouts.

Emerald X is a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerald Holding, a New York-based business-to-business event and media company.

“This is the natural evolution of companies, industries and my career,” Walsh said. “Things change. MJBiz is in a great place.

“We built a company that has helped many businesses and individuals in the industry. We navigated through a very difficult time through the pandemic and were acquired.”

Walsh, who became the company’s CEO in 2020, said he plans to take time off before considering his next move.
