Creating, manufacturing, and launching a cannabis products is no easy task. It takes an upbeat attitude, razor sharp project management skills, and a sense of adventure to navigate these waters. Nico Moe is Caliva's Product Operations Manager and handles this with an infectious, enthusiastic spirit, AND he was instrumental in putting together our summer playlist. Let's meet Nico!
Caliva Weekly (CW): Hi Nico! So Product Operations Manager? How do you describe your job to friends and family?
Nico: A professional cat-herder, I coordinate all tasks necessary when Caliva develops, launches, and produces products. From rolling doobies to getting them out to market, I make sure every department works together to ensure a smooth product launch and delivery.
CW: Where can we find you on your days off?
Nico: Either in the greater Sacramento area enjoying all that the Delta Region and Yolo Bypass has to offer, at my home in San Mateo working on my house/backyard, or in Pacifica catching some great surf!
CW: If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be? Why?
Nico: Davey Crockett or some other early American trapper/explorer – I’d love to learn more about wilderness survival!
CW: What was the last thing you learned that made a big impact on you or an ah-ha moment?
Nico: For certain car categories (and if you have the right credit score) and projecting maintenance + registration costs, it makes more economic sense to buy a new car with 0% apr for the financing term, than to take out a loan for a used car in the same category. Totally not kidding.
CW: What do you like about working at Caliva?
Nico: The people! Both our customers, and our employees – everyone with whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting/working with so far has brought with them a fascinating story, and taught me something new. Every time.
