He holds a BS and a Regulatory Affairs Certification from Colorado State University (CSU), Fort Collins, CO.

Agricor and Botanacor have consistently demonstrated the ability to draw top talent in the marijuana and hemp sectors, and Dana Hutchenson’s hiring is even more evidence of the Companies’ stature among the most-prestigious marijuana and hemp testing companies.

Dana Hutchenson joins Agricor and Botanacor at a time of extraordinary growth of the Companies’ customer base, and of the marijuana and hemp markets at large.  Agricor and Botanacor had achieved industry renown for delivering accurate and compliant product-testing services with the highest standards of cGMP for laboratory testing regulation, cGLP, and for scientific data integrity.

“We’re thrilled to have Dana join us, and he brings deep expertise at a time when we are adjusting to the rapidly changing regulatory environment,” said Dr. Carl Craig, Agricor and Botanacor’s CEO.  “Our ‘bench strength’ of marijuana and hemp experts in multiple categories is as strong as any company in North America, and Dana only adds to it.”
