Director of Hemp Operations
A true pioneer in the industry, Preston Whitfield is the Director of Hemp Operations at FlexMOD Solutions,a Denver based design + build firm with collective knowledge and expertise in the hemp and cannabis industries that specializes in providing custom tailored solutions using best in class systems.
Preston’s humble roots were originally planted in North Carolina on a tobacco farm where his family experienced the economic struggles during the decline of the industry. From his early burdens budded an understanding of how hemp and cannabis could change the landscape of agriculture for the better. Preston has since dedicated his life’s work to educating and campaigning to rewrite laws regarding the industry using his impressive background in agriculture and construction to influence on an extraordinary level. In 2017, his dreams came to fruition when he and his family planted the first legal cannabis plant since prohibition in his home state. Throughout his lifetime achievements, Preston has witnessed firsthand the bottlenecks within the industry and has made it his mission to create seamless paths to bring crops from farm to market.
Preston also serves as the Program Director for the NOCO Hemp Expo in Denver, Colorado, an event aimed at connecting industry leaders to a global audience.
