David Belsky, is the CEO and Founder of FlowerHire- a leading staffing and talent strategy firm serving the regulated cannabis industry. It has filled over 300 positions in 10 states since its inception in 2017. FlowerHire believes that the cannabis movement will continue to positively impact the human condition more than any other emerging industry in modern history.

David has been in recruiting since 2004, when he took a job at a technology recruiting and search firm, and moved his way up, helping take the company from a $10 million business to upwards of $200 million. In 2017, looking for his next challenge, he ended up resigning and took his experience to the legal cannabis industry, which ultimately led to him launching FlowerHire.
