Mick Mountz

Mick founded Kiva Systems in January 2003 after spending thirteen years in high tech product development, manufacturing, operations, and marketing.

With a unique blend of warehouse management expertise and technology insight, Mick is the chief architect of Kiva’s game-changing product vision.

Prior to Kiva, Mick worked on a business process team at Webvan designing a next generation distribution strategy for grocery home delivery, during which he experienced first-hand the high cost of order fulfillment and the inflexibility of existing material handling systems.

Prior to joining Webvan, Mick spent three years in product marketing at Apple Computer as a Product Manager where he helped move many new technologies into the standard desktop platform including FireWire, DVD, Fast Ethernet, and 3D graphics acceleration.

He began his career at Motorola, where he worked as both a Mechanical and a Manufacturing Engineer.

In 2008 Mick was a winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award in the New England region. In 2009, under Mick’s leadership, Kiva was ranked #6 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing companies in America, and Gartner named Kiva one of its “Cool Vendors in Supply Chain Management.” Mick holds six United States technology patents.

He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a MBA from Harvard Business School.
