Scott Hammon, CPA

Cannabis Industry Leader | Partner

I've been at the forefront of the cannabis industry since MGO began its involvement, serving as the leader of the cannabis practice. I hold a deep understanding of both the challenges and opportunities that operators and investors face. As an assurance professional, I bring a comprehensive knowledge of financial best practices and support our clients from the early development stages right through to a sale, IPO, or RTO, establishing a strong foundation for their growth.

Throughout my 30-year career, I have worked with public and private companies in various industries, including technology, renewable energy, real estate, life sciences, cannabis, consumer packaged goods, and retail. I specialize in public and private equity, debt financing, and in applying IFRS. 

I have been primarily focused on the cannabis industry since the opening of the California market and I am proud to have led some of the largest transactions in the history of the sector. I work with leading multi-state operators, promising startups, leading tech and ancillary service providers, investment groups, and everyone in-between. As one of the first national accounting firms to seriously engage the cannabis industry, I am very proud of the work our firm has done in identifying and implementing accounting and financial best practices focused on legitimizing the cannabis industry.
