Mitch Quint, President of Formica Group North America, Dies
Mitch Quint, president of Formica Group North America, recently passed away after battling pancreatic cancer.
“Mitch has been an outstanding leader for Formica Group and has supported the business not only in North America, but also globally” says Matthijs Schoten, CEO of Broadview Holding BV, parent company to Formica Group. “He was instrumental in the acquisition by Broadview and continued to strongly contribute to achieving the global market leadership position we hold today.”
“Above all, it was a pleasure to work with Mitch,” he adds. “In these past years, we built a strong bond based on trust and transparency. We will miss him dearly.”
Quint joined Formica Corporation in 2006 as vice president of corporate planning and later moved to the North American business unit where he managed manufacturing activities and led a successful operational turnaround for the business during a global economic downturn.
During his time as president of the North American business—a role he assumed in 2010—Formica Corporation transformed its service model and quality to regain its position as a global surfacing leader.
Previously, Quint was principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, a strategy and technology consulting firm. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan and a master of business administration from Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management.
An active member of the Cincinnati community, Quint served on the Board of Directors for the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens and the Cincinnati Parks Foundation at various times during his tenure.
He is survived by his wife, Aviva, and daughters, Charlotte and Evelyn.
