We are back at it today, speaking with Chris Tenaglia of Valiant Group America, as he brings his unique experience of the construction side of the cannabis industry to light. Valiant is a vertically integrated team, meaning they have professionals from all aspects of the construction industry, in-house. This eases confusion throughout the entire process, and makes for great communication throughout the company and for the client. Chris, the chief operating officer of Valiant, speaks with us today about his experiences at Valiant and calls out the bullshit he’s had to deal with throughout his time in the industry.

Valiant is a leader in development, management, consulting and general contracting. With past experience in restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and other industrial buildings, Valiant’s newfound success follows a decade-long specialization in commercial development of cannabis cultivation facilities and dispensaries. The construction giant’s claim to fame is their vertically-integrated trades structure. The structure allows Valiant to train all of their own employees instead of hiring subcontractors. This maximizes quality of work and minimizes the timeline of each project. Most recently, Valiant was selected as the primary distributor and installer for Agrify, a high-tech firm specializing in state-of-the-art, software-controlled cannabis vertical farming units and modular containers.
Christopher Tenaglia, Chief Operating Officer of Valiant, has extensive leadership experience over various industries including finance, production and construction.

Christopher regularly manages teams of over 100 employees and has owned and managed several companies over the past 10 years. Across all of the multi-million dollar Valiant projects, Chris is a driving force in the field as a coordinator with all company personnel, schedules, assurance of deadlines & timelines, leadership & management meetings, and point-person for all communication regarding Valiant business matters and ongoing projects.
