Keeping people active, on their feet, for life

 

When we set out to build this company, we did not want to just sell footwear – stores that sell shoes already exist. Kintec exists because we believe that by providing education on proper performance and health-oriented footwear, we can positively impact people’s lives.

To us, the opportunity to positively impact our customers’ lives every day is very exciting! It’s what drives every Kintec Pedorthist, Fitting Expert, and orthotic specialist. It’s why we go the extra mile in helping our customers find the perfect foot solution so that they can stay active, on their feet, and achieve a healthier lifestyle.

The people that built this vision

Mark

Founder & CEO

I started Kintec in 1991 with the intent of it being the best place to be fitted for footwear and orthotics in Canada. We have the Lower Mainland’s best selection of performance footwear and the most highly-trained staff in any footwear store in the country. Our commitment is GREAT customer service and value for your money.

Outside of Kintec, my passion includes kiteboarding, hockey, running, fishing, as well as motorcycle racing.

Mitch

Chief Operating Officer

I started with Kintec in 2001 wanting to work for a growing company where I could use my degree. I started out as one of our Fit Experts, and over time have filled many roles at Kintec.  I love being a part of Kintec and watching our team keep people active on their feet.  The best part of my day is watching our team grow and improve continuously to better help serve our customers.

I grew up as a National level wrestler and wrestling coach; this great sport helped me become a better leader.  Outside of work my family loves to travel and explore the world in an active way.  We have trekked to Everest base camp as well as cycled through France.
