SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles (www.kushbottles.com), North America's premier supplier of customizable child-resistant packaging solutions and accessories for the legal cannabis industry, announced that today Chris Martin, company CFO, has been nominated by the Orange County Business Journal as the "Orange County CFO of the Year." The award is bestowed to an area financial professional for outstanding performance as corporate steward for the preceding fiscal year.
Martin, who joined the company in August 2014, has been instrumental in implementing fiscal accountability and compliance, and also leads the team that is completing the myriad of financial reporting requirements that accompany the transition from a privately-held to a publicly-traded company.

Martin, who is known for his cool composure, successfully led the team through a series of complex matters, including acquisitions, expansion, and SEC filings.
"I am thrilled that Chris has been nominated as Orange County CFO of the Year," Nicholas Kovacevich, Co-Founder and CEO of Kush Bottles, Inc. commented. "Chris has been integral to our growth, and will continue to provide a steady hand and leadership as we move into the public markets. Our goal is to be the most transparent, compliant and fiscally responsible company in the cannabis industry."
