A regulatory specialist, Dede is passionate about combining compliance with operational excellence; safe, standardized products; empowered employees; strong company culture and brands.
When she’s not working, Dede is enjoying great meals and amazing sunsets at Sebago Lake; training and teaching new tricks to her crazy dog, Bodie; reading a good book; or, walking and hiking with family and friends.
Tony Perkins, co-founder of Onside Compliance, Inc. and ProCanna, knows entrepreneurship and innovation. In addition to being a key member of the Onside Compliance and ProCanna team, Tony has practiced law with Bernstein Shur for three decades, and since the late 1990s has assisted countless start-up and established technology companies with everything from raising angel and venture capital, to developing and commercializing new products and services, to negotiating sales and mergers. He currently heads up the firms’ cannabis practice group.
When he’s not working, Tony is an active community member, serving on the board of the Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development and as a mentor in the organization’s Top Gun program among others. Otherwise he’s hanging out with his family at Sebago Lake, brushing up on his Spanish, or getting in some exercise via cycling, tennis, and his continuing role as the longest tenured member of the Bernstein’s softball team. He also fantasizes regularly about learning to play the guitar.
