Sasha Aksenov, Co-CEO of the The Blinc Group said, “In both the nicotine vaping and cannabis vaping markets, the need for standards is mandatory for consumer safety but also very important with regards to current and upcoming regulations. We are very happy to have Arnaud spearheading these efforts on the international level as his expertise and experience with vaping products is paramount to The Blinc Group’s members, partners and products for staying one step ahead when it comes to innovation.”
