I know what it's like to be a rebel industry pioneer entrepreneur. It's been a central part of my character for the last 50 years. I've started and operated many small to medium size innovative and disruptive companies. I've had decades of experience with sales, vertical integration, marketing, personnel, negotiation, advertising, campaigning, e-commerce, warehousing, shipping, international and domestic trade as well as attorneys, accountants, bankers, designers, politicians, financiers, property managers, government officials, lenders, activists, merchants, builders, etc.

I find simple innovative solutions to complicated and seemingly intractable challenges. I'm a 'doer' not a 'talker' with a flair for strategic and tactical planning and execution.

For many years I was a high profile entrepreneur in the gray market electronics industry and helped pioneer the 'underground' culture that went with it. The industry came to an abrupt end with the economic crash of 2008, and four years ago I became a licensed NY real estate agent. I was obliged to transition many years of 'practical' business practice to a new paradigm of transparency, compliance, confidentiality, regulation and client loyalty.

As an entrepreneur in the legal, regulated cannabis industry, it's essential that we make the transition not only as an individuals but for the sake of our fledgling industry and community. I succeeded and I can help you accomplish the same! 

Orion Group NYC was founded to provide cannabis entrepreneurs and investors with innovative tools and resources to liberate their creativity and energy while at the same time building a strong competitive foundation for long term success.

ORION GROUP NYC introduces licensed, ancillary and in-between clients to compliant, legal depository banking and payment solutions. We also work directly with financial institutions nationwide to guide them in providing sustainable, compliant, transparent accounts for all industry segments. The Company is actively building its infrastructure to provide these and related services to the entire domestic industry by 3/Q 2018.

Not treated differently but there may be some differing compliance and due diligence requirements imposed by individual regulators. The overall objective is to assure to the greatest reasonable extent that the beneficial owners of the MRB as well as all funds deposited are 'clean' and accounted for, and there is no co-mingling of funds from other enterprises, particularly illegal ones.

Of course, it would not be unheard of that an individual financial institution might use the pretext of who their regulating body is to deny service altogether.
