John “Harts” Hartsell is the co-founder and CEO of DIZPOT, a leading-edge global cannabis packaging company providing customers with single source branding, packaging, and proprietary technology solution, known for bringing compliant products to market quickly in the highly competitive CPG environment. Armed with international expertise and a sharp sense of humor, Hartsell is a lifelong entrepreneur with a marketing background who has worked with some of the world’s largest brands such as YUM! Brands, Walmart, and Harkins Theaters. After creating and building several successful companies, Hartsell co-founded DIZPOT in 2017, and since then, the company has grown into one of the largest cannabis packaging firms in the country boasting proprietary technologies, a 14,000 sq. ft. facility in Phoenix, and a presence in all legalized states. True to his roots, Hartsell and his business partner, Jeff Scrabeck, built their company upon the foundation of “Old School Service, The Golden Rule” and “No Hesitation” core values that stand true every day. Hartsell, who attributes his success to the innovative company culture, is known to combine business and fun while seriously supporting legalization efforts in the U.S. and abroad. Putting his money where his mouth is, Hartsell was an ardent supporter of Arizona’s Prop 207 which legalized adult use in that state. He is still actively involved on a state and federal level with lobbying and political activities that move the industry forward. For fun, Hartsell co-hosts the YouTube PODCAST “Alice & Bill’s,” where he entertains his audience by inviting special VIP guests to dab and discuss life from DIZPOT’s in-house recording studio. John’s greatest achievement is not professional at all, it’s his strong family bond with Marcie, Maddox, and Gracie.
