Zoned Properties, Inc. (OTC: ZDPY) announced today it has hired Bryan McLaren as Vice President of Operations and Chief Sustainability Officer. McLaren comes to Zoned Properties with a strong professional background in the social, economic, and environmental development of complex business organizations. For nearly a decade he has been working across a variety of roles in the sustainability industry. McLaren holds a Bachelors of Business Administration (B.B.A.) with an emphasis on ethical studies from the University of San Diego, a Masters of Sustainability (M.A.) from Northern Arizona University, and is trained in sustainable architecture design with an accreditation as a Green Roof Professional (G.R.P.).

In previous professional roles, McLaren has worked as a leader in the higher education industry as the Sustainability Manager for Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. In this role, he worked directly with other leaders across the country to shape the future of sustainability in higher education. While in Flagstaff, the Mayor and City Council appointed McLaren as a Flagstaff Sustainability Commissioner to help guide sustainable development.

As VP of Operations & Chief Sustainability Officer of Zoned Properties, McLaren will bring his experience in organizational development and knowledge of Corporate Social Responsibility to ensure a profitable and sustainable future for the organization.

He continues, "A sustainable organization will maximize each of these three elements increasing the overall value of the organization for both its shareholders and also the wide range of organizational stakeholders essential to success."

Zoned Properties, Inc. CEO Marc Brannigan stated: "We are thrilled to have Mr. McLaren join the company. His expertise in sustainability will be an asset for us as we move to acquire properties with water rights. We believe the heavy water use by growers will be of great concern to municipalities as the industry matures and we plan on being at the forefront in addressing that issue by acquiring properties that don't rely on public water."

At present time Zoned Properties, Inc. remains engaged in interviewing candidates for upper management positions with the company.
