Founder and CEO at Cura Partners/Select Oil
Cameron Forni, Cura Partners Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer, Founder of Select
In 2015, Forni’s innovative spirit drove the cannabis industry to a new level when he identified and solved a problem in the vape pen category. Wanting to help his friend who suffered from Barrett’s esophagus find a clean, smoke-free way to use cannabis, he deconstructed every vaporizer until he landed on the organic cotton wick. From there, the Select brand emerged. Cura's mission is to be the leading provider of cannabis oil to both consumers and premium edible brands in legal US and international markets and Forni is determined to lead the industry into maturity while normalizing the use of cannabis.
Now one of the world's leading cannabis companies, Forni’s passion for this company is relentless and contagious. In his role at Cura, Forni was honored as one of the 100 Most Influential in Cannabis by High Times Magazine. Under his leadership, Cura’s received many honors including:
Best companies to work for by Oregon Business Magazine in 2018 and 2019
#1 fastest growing company in Oregon by Portland Business Journal
Top Oregon Company on the Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies, placing no. 45 on the list overall
Mr. Forni was honored as one of the 100 Most Influential in Cannabis by High Times Magazine in 2018 and 2019, and as one of the 40 Under 40 to Watch by Marijuana Venture Magazine in 2018. He also serves on the Advisory Board for the LA Cannabis Task Force.
Forni’s entrepreneurial spirit began early in his life as he's co-founded several successful start-ups.
