Gov. Joe Lombardo (R) announced Tuesday that James Humm will be the new executive director of the Cannabis Compliance Board.

The position is currently held by Tyler Klimas, who is leaving to start a cannabis and hemp consulting company. Klimas is bound by a one-year cooling off period during which he cannot represent certain establishments in the state.

“I approached the governor’s office in September and let them know I’d be transitioning out,” Klimas said via phone. “So we’ve worked over the last couple of months to put a transition plan in place and he appointed Jimmy Humm, who I’m with right now and who’s going to take over the role.”

“Jimmy has done exemplary work at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and I look forward to Jimmy bringing his nuanced understanding of state government and industry issues to his new role,” Lombardo said in a news release.

Humm has worked at GOED since 2019, first as Director of Compliance and Regulatory Affairs, and most recently as Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs.

“During his tenure at GOED, Humm served as the agency’s point person in the Nevada Legislature, where he successfully passed several economic development related bills and contributed to the approval and signage of several others,” the news release said.

He previously served as the deputy chief of staff and legislative liaison for the Office of Attorney General. He also worked as director of operations for a Las Vegas law firm.

“I am humbled and honored to be appointed by Governor Lombardo to serve in this role,” Humm said. “I look forward to joining the incredible team at the Cannabis Compliance Board and executing the governor’s agenda to ethically regulate this burgeoning industry.”
