July 14th, 2021
Industry Veteran Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani Takes The Helm As CEO
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 14, 2021) – Clearmind Medicine Inc. (CSE: CMND) (“Clearmind” or the “Company“), a psychedelic medicine biotech company focused on the discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve widespread and undertreated health problems, is pleased to announce changes to its executive management team in conjunction with an accelerated effort to execute the strategic shift to psychedelic drug development as defined in its May 25th Change of Business listing on the Canadian Stock Exchange.
Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani, PhD., a biomedical research and development executive with over 20 years of strategic and operational leadership in the healthcare industry, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Zuloff-Shani has extensive experience successfully navigating the highly regulated process of taking therapeutics from discovery to commercialization.
Oz Locker, a proven entrepreneur with significant managerial and operational experience, has been appointed Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Locker most recently served as the CEO of a fully integrated CBD company in the U.S, and prior, he served in several leadership positions in fast growing technological startups. Oz is a veteran Air-Force pilot and has earned his MBA from Harvard Business School.
Gadi Levin, a Qualified Chartered Accountant with over 25 years’ experience in senior financial positions, will become the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Levin has served as CFO of several North American publicly listed companies as well as Vice President of Finance and CFO for two Israeli investment houses focused on private equity, hedge funds and real estate and regularly consults with start-up and earlier stage companies.
Ezekiel Golan, inventor of the technology underlying the Company’s Binge Behavior Regulators, will now serve only as a Special Advisor for Innovation and New Initiatives.
“I’m excited to see the technology I created continue to evolve into what will hopefully become proven therapies. Clearmind’s first candidate, a treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder, is expected to treat millions of people who have difficulties managing alcohol consumption” Golan commented.
Golan went on, “As the Company embarks on the rigorous regulatory approval process, it’s critical that they have an experienced management team at the helm. I will continue to support Clearmind as Special Advisor for Innovation and New Initiatives. This is a truer representation of my role at the Company and gives me the liberty to more broadly investigate the many indications for psychedelics as medicine.”
Dr. Zuloff-Shani commented on the appointments, “I believe that psychedelic-based medicine has the potential to revolutionize the way we treat mental health issues, and that Clearmind is positioned to become a leader in the field. We have assembled a management team with the expertise and passion necessary to achieve that objective, and we are all eager to get started.”
