“Formation of this advisory board is an important milestone for Smart for Life,” said Darren Minton, CEO for the Company. “We have enlisted a highly competent group of industry leaders with exceptionally diversified backgrounds, all of whom have been quite successful in their respective fields.

A.J. Cervantes, Executive Chairman of the Company, further noted, “This advisory board is a compilation of renowned executives that will act as a sounding board and support strategic initiatives aimed at rapidly scaling businesses. A well-structured advisory board with best practice principles allows people in the organization to test their strategic thinking and access expertise or connections that may not be readily available via other means.”

Mr. Minton concluded, “The purpose of most advisory boards is to help an organization gain new insights and advice to solve business problems or explore new opportunities by stimulating robust, high-quality conversations. The role of an advisory board is not to make decisions, but rather to provide current knowledge, critical thinking and analysis to increase the confidence of the decision-makers who represent the company. We look forward to working closely with the advisory board to further advance our Company.”
