MORRISVILLE, N.C., Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyxus International, Inc. (NYSE: PYX) is pleased to announce its wholly

owned indirect Canadian subsidiary, FIGR Inc., has hired Harvey Carroll as its new President. Carroll assumes the role effective immediately.

"Pyxus' investment in legal, adult-use recreational cannabis in

"Harvey's extensive experience in related industries will be of tremendous benefit, and his proven track record of growth and maximization will be invaluable as the FIGR team advances its corporate strategy."

Carroll brings more than 25 years of experience in the alcohol beverage, food, and media and communications industries to the FIGR leadership team.
