(CSE: SILO) (FRA:3K70), a leading wellness company in the psychedelics and functional mushroom market, is pleased to announce the appointment of its newest board member, Wayne Isaacs. A seasoned Jamaican-Canadian businessman, Isaacs is a recognized leader in the natural, plant-based medicine industry. This appointment follows the recent passing of board member Maurice ‘Moe’ Colson.
With nearly two decades of experience serving in key leadership roles from President to Chief Executive Officer for several Toronto-based mineral exploration companies, including Forsys Metals Corporation, Augustine Ventures, Inc., and Delta Uranium, Inc., Isaacs is a valuable addition to the board.

This company, formed to leverage global opportunities in medicinal cannabis, employs vertically integrated business efforts on the island nation. Isaacs also co-owns a medical clinic in Ontario, Canada and holds business interests in natural medicine-based solutions companies in Spain.

Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Silo Wellness, warmly welcomes Wayne Isaacs to the board, commending Isaacs’ foresight and business acumen as a key player in the legal cannabis movement in Jamaica. Isaacs’ vast leadership experience in the public sector and his expertise in plant-based wellness will add great value to Silo Wellness, particularly as the company looks to expand globally.
Born in Jamaica, Isaacs was educated at the prestigious Western University in Ontario. He has spent the majority of his career on Bay Street, specializing in the resource sector both as a corporate executive and as an investment banker. In addition to serving on various corporate boards and holding leadership roles in public and private companies, Isaacs often participates in international industry and thought leadership conferences as a panelist, presenter, and speaker.
In his own statement, Isaacs expressed his attraction to serving as a board member for Silo Wellness, highlighting the opportunity to provide strategic consultation to the company’s unique product offering.
