(OTC: NUGL) (the “Company”), the cannabis industry's new standard of technology, today announces the addition of Bob Waters, former Associate Publisher and Sales Director of Culture Magazine, as Vice President of Sales for NUGL Inc. Waters will take the lead in developing NUGL’s sales team and leverage his vast expertise in sales and marketing to assist in the launch of strategic partnerships and acquisitions for NUGL’s growing stable of cannabis-focused initiatives.
“The addition of Bob could not be a better fit for us.

NUGL offers so many types of advertising options and creative strategies to help brands, services and shops get their name out in the industry.”
Waters has been leading sales organizations for over 30 years. His resume includes holding the title of Chief Petty Officer U.S. Navy during his military service. Waters was on the tip of the spear of the nation’s global defense efforts serving in operations Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Enduring Freedom, Balikatan, and multiple humanitarian missions. He also spent eight years driving the marketing and recruitment efforts for the U.S. Navy throughout the Western United States territory. After his military service, Waters joined DexMedia’s leadership team to bring to market new digital/print B2B solutions that helped local, small- to medium-sized businesses thrive. His resume includes working in traditional daily news organizations such as the Standard Examiner out of Ogden, Utah, as the digital sales manager. Prior to joining the NUGL team he most recently served as Associate Publisher and Sales Director for Culture Magazine, a cannabis lifestyle publication that has grown to seven editions serving a widening population of cannabis savvy consumers.
“My background as an executive was built on advertising and sales. I love to sell, I love to build good teams and good strategies, and I love to make my clients happy,” Waters states. “I have built lasting relationships in the cannabis space by providing exceptional service. I’m a firm believer in the value of building and protecting an excellent reputation. When I was first introduced to NUGL and read the company’s philosophy, “for the people by the people,” it raised my interest. I started to learn more about what NUGL is building and the company’s long-term goals and thought, I really want to be a part of this, and so I am. Culture Magazine has been great to me and we plan to work with them in the future. It’s time for me to move in a direction I feel is best for my skill set and NUGL is it.”
