Today, Cameron is President of Select at Curaleaf, the world’s largest legal cannabis company by revenue. The below timeline chronicles Cameron’s career moves from college to the apex of the cannabis industry. 

Feb 2020 to Present Curaleaf

As President and Founder of Select at Curaleaf, Cameron is responsible for Select’s rapid expansion across the United States.

2015-2020 Cura Cannabis Solutions

Cameron Forni Co-founded Cura Cannabis Solutions, also known as Cura Partners in 2015. At Cura, Cameron developed a breakthrough for vaporization devices, oil extraction, and product innovation. At the time, most cartridges contained dangerous low-grade silica fiberglass. Cameron wanted to build a cleaner system and used organic cotton with a unique absorption system. That innovation led to the Select oil brand, which became the best selling cannabis brand on the West Coast. Cameron sold Cura to Curaleaf in February 2020.
