Meet Our Team
A life-long farmer and Marine Corp veteran with a master’s in supply chain management, Cory was one of the first to grow legal hemp in the US, harvesting the first legal crop grown in Washington state in 80 years in 2017.
Cory brings a keen entrepreneurial spirit, his own experience growing, processing and selling the crop, and a no-nonsense approach to the industry. He is positioning HempLogic not only for the current year’s crop but future opportunities in the industry.
Cory lives with his family on the east side of Washington state. When he isn’t talking to somebody about hemp, you can find him running a tractor, organizing a crew or inspecting his own hemp fields.
Kurt Beckley, CFO of HempLogic, starts every day thinking about how he can use his skills to help HempLogic’s customers.
Kurt, who has an MBA in global enterprise management, handles the financial, legal and administrative side of HempLogic. But for Beckley, the best part of the job is the demonstrating his integrity, and drive, to help others.
With a background in the food industry and commercial banking, Kurt was an agricultural lender before joining the HempLogic team in March of 2019. He is a long-time friend of HempLogic founder Cory Sharp.
