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. ADHD has been something he has dealt with all his life, but it’s a huge asset for us, as he’s also a “proving ground” for which CBD products actually work! 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.

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!
At the age of 57, Bernie developed IBS, Celiac and Fibromyalgia. She discovered CBD whilst looking for supplements to help with her health. 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.

Pamela Bonnick looks after all of the office administrative tasks as well as manages office functions. She started working at the age of 16 in an office environment doing different tasks, from Sales to Purchasing, Accounts and Credit Controller. She took time out to have her lovely children and returned back to work but in a different roll looking after the elderly.
Pam joined the Compare CBD team at the beginning as she knew firsthand the benefits of taking CBD. Struggling with going through the change from hot flushes to bad memory and mood swings, but not only that, her beautiful older sister was diagnosed the day before New Year’s Eve back in 2016 with terminal stomach cancer, she is currently taking CBD and is still fighting the long battle she has to face.
Pamela lives her life by “Family is everything”
A major asset to the team and we couldn’t do this without her expertise! She keeps us organized, that’s for sure!
STEPH DAWSONFOUNDER / SALES
Steph left home at 18 and went to Leeds General Infirmary to become a nurse. In 1985 she passed her exams and became registered. Her first job as a Staff Nurse, was a busy A & E Department at Leeds. This was a very demanding job, which she found very challenging at times. She became very disillusioned about this career and left only a few years later.
In 1998 she got a job for a business Internet Service Provider selling internet services. This was cold calling and within 8 weeks of being there, she was the top salesperson, and never dropped off that spot for the next 4 years, until she left. She worked in sales until 2015, she was always one of the best, but had to leave to care for her mum who was dying of cancer.
In early 2018, she joined an MLM company and met Bernie Fusco and James Cummiskey. The rest is history. She is now the Sales Director for comparecbd.com, and has found the place where she is going to be for the rest of her life.
