OUR AWESOME TEAM
James is the leader of the team, the man who put the idea into motion! He hails from humble beginnings but you’d never know that to meet this dynamic go getter!
The foundation for Compare CBD is set as James boasts a successful sales and management background. He built a digital marketing agency over a 5 year period with many blue chip global clients and has run many other successful businesses. With a huge passion for helping people, James’ goal is to build a special team of people that would normally never get the chance to achieve massive success, some with the odds stacked against them. Together we make so many dreams come true.
Living his life by the law of attraction, James is set to create a “Quinton Leap”. This honest, loyal, family man with an incredible entrepreneurial spirit has already set the wheels in motion. There’s no doubt Compare CBD will be a smashing success under the watchful eye of this born leader, shaker and deal maker!
RYAN DALEBUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
Ryan is the team “energizer bunny” and we’re not remotely kidding here! His energy is infectious which makes him the perfect man for this position!
With years of wheeling and dealing under his belt, Ryan is very passionate about sales and the business world. A very ambitious entrepreneur, Ryan is a “get it done” kind of guy.
He’s very honest about his background and personal struggles. Losing his beloved brother is what lead him to James. They met in a previous company and share many of the same goals. It was a no-brainer to team up and conquer the world together.
PAUL JACKSONCHIEF COMPLIANCE OFFICER
Paul is our Chief Compliance Officer and oversees compliance, risk management, public affairs and government relations. Paul joined the team after having initially worked with Compare CBD as a wholesale customer. Paul has a dedicated passion for medical cannabis and joined the industry with an interest in working towards more defined regulation. Paul has followed the regulation of the industry very closely and is excited to work with a company focused on bringing premium cannabis products to consumers and advocating for a fully-regulated cannabis market.
Paul moved to the UK from the US in 2016 after his wife accepted a new role. It was then that he began exploring career options in the cannabis industry, having experienced first-hand how CBD helped him. Upon meeting James and his team it was immediately clear that he would be a great fit in the business. Paul holds both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Public Affairs from the University of Texas at Dallas, and he has experience working in public affairs, economic development and politics.
Paul has a keen interest in current affairs and is a self-proclaimed news junkie. When he is not busy working on cannabis-related endeavours, Paul enjoys spending time with his wife, two kids and their rescue dog, Rufus.
Bernie is the co-founder and a part owner of comparecbd.com, and also the mother of CEO James.
Bernie has been a single mom for many years, to her own children as well as four others that were not her own. With a heart of gold, she cared for them all with great love and attention. An exemplary mother as James says.
Bernie was born to be a ‘mum’ to everyone! She always thinks of others before herself and never moans about the stresses of her day to day life. She is someone everyone looks up to and respects; and is always smiling!
She joined an MLM selling CBD and it was here that she met up with Steph Dawson. She started working with Steph and researching CBD, which is where the idea of comparecbd.com came from. Bernie is now a key person of Compare CBD Ltd and is working as part of a 10 person team. She is feeling happier than she has been for years and is looking forward to a bright future.
