With a master's in government and public policy, Beryl Solomon began her career as a consultant in the public sector. Frustrated with the bureaucracy and her inability to truly initiate change, she refocused her energies on another passion of hers, fashion and retail. Following a specialized degree from Parsons School of Design, Solomon worked at Theory, Kate Spade, Pamela Love and Alexis Bittar, all of which allowed her to develop her professional craft in branding, design, merchandising, marketing, operations, logistics, sales and international expansion. After 15 years of working in the corporate world for large fashion companies, Solomon took a step into the start-up space to challenge herself even further.
With a keen sense in business development and an interest in the CBD and cannabis markets, Solomon discovered a major void in product education and launched Poplar in late 2018. What started as a passion project, immediately transformed into a lucrative, digital platform that not only provided insight to the “canna-curious,” but offers curated CBD products with expert insights on how they work, what they do, and ultimately, how it will benefit specific health and wellness needs. Solomon resides in Brooklyn with her husband and two sons
