Post Career Highlights

Brad Klock (“Klocker”) is a former college and professional hockey player. Brad played four
years at the University of British Columbia (Kinesiology) and went on to play 7 years in Europe
(Germany & Holland). After several serious concussions, multiple knee (4) and elbow surgeries,
Brad retired in 1994 at the age of 31. Upon retiring from hockey, Brad helped to pioneer the highly regulated medical retail world of
LASIK surgery in North America. Through early development of a retail model that brought
LASIK surgery to the masses, Brad became the first (and remains the only) Canadian to launch
over 50 regulated retail LASIK surgery centers in both Canada and the US. His “post hockey”

experience as an entrepreneur, founder & CEO, spans 20 years in regulated medical retail start-
up, M&A, compliance, construction, launch and operations management within both the
private & public sectors. In 2018, with the federal legalization of cannabis in Canada, Brad
founded BRICKS + BLOOM CANNABIS COMPANY, a “for athletes by athletes” regulated retail
cannabis development. In the summer of 2019, Brad partnered/merged with LEGACY and ROSS’
GOLD founder & CEO, Ross Rebagliati (1998 Olympic Gold medalist snowboarder and long-time
cannabis advocate). Together, through a “for athletes by athletes” platform, Brad and Ross are
currently launching a global, multi brand, fully integrated “seed to sale” cannabis company.
