"I am excited by the opportunity that exists for Love Hemp and pleased to accept this appointment. These Board and Management changes will help the Company move forward and maximise its opportunities. Our initial goals are to satisfy the requirements for the AQSE Growth Market and to continue to strengthen the performance and structure of the Company. The Company is currently completing the operational restructure, announced on the 31 March 2022, and is considering its long-term objectives to create shareholder value."
