Experience - Special Skills
Pauline’s passion for the legalized cannabis industry is what lead her to join her husband David Hyde in 2013 as they built Canada’s foremost cannabis security consultancy – David Hyde and Associates (DHA).
With over 8 years of experience in the cannabis space, Pauline has established an extensive network within the industry allowing her the privilege of working with 100’s of Cannabis companies on key aspects of their business.
Previously, as the acting CFO and Strategic Advisor at DHA, Pauline’s expertise in analyzing company financials coupled with her strategic mind and keen ability to understand all aspects of the business - most importantly client needs - is in part what led to the successful negotiation and sale of DHA in 2018. Pauline has continued to succeed in the cannabis industry consulting with a number of Cannabis companies before joining the CannaNavigators team in 2020.
Pauline’s depth of experience in business optimization, client/employee relations, and sales strategy & marketing are complimented by her previous 18-year career in retail management and business development. In working with some of Canada’s largest retail organizations - including Hudson’s Bay, Roots, and Levi’s - Pauline was tasked with overseeing all aspects of company operations from onboarding to international brand purchasing as well as creating and implementing security and training programs.
As Chief Financial Officer, Pauline brings her 8 years of hands-on cannabis industry experience coupled with her extensive knowledge of business optimization, financial corporate development, team building, and client satisfaction in helping round out the incredibly experienced and talented team at CannaNavigators.
