New Frontier Data promoted Dr. Amanda Reiman as its new chief knowledge officer.


Reiman, who joined New Frontier Data in January as vice president of public policy research, is a social ethnobotanist with more than 20 years of experience studying the relationship between cannabis, people and society, according to a release. She earned her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, and her experience also includes roles with Berkeley Patients Group, the Drug Policy Alliance, and Flow Cannabis Co.

“I joined New Frontier Data because I believe in the team’s work to bring unbiased, vetted data to an industry that needs it,” Reiman said. “I look forward to the opportunity to oversee the amazing team responsible for this research and help further the cannabis industry with actionable insights that inform key stakeholders at every level.”

Reiman assumes the title of chief knowledge officer following the appointment of John Kagia as director of policy for New York’s Office of Cannabis Management.

“New Frontier Data is in the fortunate position of being able to promote Amanda Reiman to chief knowledge officer following her exemplary tenure as VP, Public Policy and Research,” said Gary Allen, CEO of New Frontier Data. “Amanda is one of the few who could follow in the footsteps of John Kagia, an original employee of New Frontier Data and an esteemed industry thought leader whose appointment at this historic moment in New York’s industry will continue to pay dividends for the cannabis industry for years to come.”
