Micro Kickboard is the U.S. distributor for innovative Swiss company Micro-Mobility, maker of the world's best-rated scooters and kickboards and other innovative products used for urban mobility. Micro leads the revolution in personal transport for urbanites and suburbanites alike and from its start in 1999, Micro has been known for its minimalist designs and precision engineering, winning prestigious design awards worldwide. Designed for adults as well as children, there's a quality Micro for every age, from 1 to 99+. In the USA, Micro Kickboard offers the most complete line of Micro products and service, selling directly to consumers and through high-end specialty and department stores across the country.

Micro's family in the US is a group of individuals united by a passion for scooting the great outdoors. When they founded Micro Kickboard, they set a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) of being as good as the products Micro makes. Not an easy goal, as the scooters have exceptional design and construction and the innovation coming out of Switzerland just never stops! So they are on the move to improve, each and every day, which they say makes the work fun and the fun work. 

Julie and Geoff Hawksworth are the founders of Micro Kickboard. They first discovered Micro while living in central London - they spotted a commuter on a scooter and fell in love (with the scooter). Here's how they describe it: We bought our first Micro, the Flex Original, in 2002. We immediately loved its high-end design and quality, which we could see was built into every part. As city dwellers, we also loved being able to get places quickly, without having to ride in the street - scooters can go places a bicycle can't, on sidewalks for instance. Our admiration and enjoyment of Micro scooters turned into a passion which led us to approach Micro Switzerland, with the help of Micro UK friends Anna and Philippa, about becoming the US distributor in 2007 when we moved to the US. 
From the start, we traveled from coast to coast to introduce the Micro brand to specialty stores, including toy, bicycle, sporting goods, museum shops, travel stores and baby boutiques. 
We are now enjoying watching the growth in scooting for transport as well as fun. Scooters work for urbanites and suburbanites alike and riders of Micro now includes families, college students, last-mile commuters, grocery shoppers and kindergarteners.
Our philosphy: The best ideas should win, and the best ideas are usually collaborative. To that end, your ideas on how we can serve you better are most welcome. We, together with our employees and customers, own the Micro brand. We invite you to share your Micro story with us via social media, or at info@microkickboard.com.

Meet the Micro team

meghan kriekaard

general manager

Ask Meghan! Meghan can solve any problem AND she leaps tall buildings. We are slightly reluctant to let this be known but Meghan knows everything about everything that happens here and has a hand in most of it. Other relevant info is that she has an obsession with Disney (she became happily married there) and a craze for Christmas, incurable. She also is step-mom to 2 amazing boys and while she says that we ALL bring her joy, she does really seem to favor the boys. WARNING: her acuity and diplomacy are such that lines to her office form early.

david stebbins

customer service manager

David totally rocks as our Customer Service Manager. If you have ever needed information or had a problem at Micro, you know what we are talking about. Exceptionally professional, kind and articulate. However, it was only when he was announced as winner of the 2015 International Customer Service Executive of the Year Bronze Award, that we became aware we had an INTERNATIONAL phenomenon on our hands. The Stevie Awards is the Oscars of the Customer Service world, complete with an award ceremony in Toronto!  When NOT at work, David continues in rock star mode, playing guitar in a band and hanging out with his lovely wife. She is part of the Micro team so he also gets to hang out with his lovely wife at work. Nice gig. He loves his dog, which we wanted to mention in case Kozmo should happen to read this. Ruff. And, also he loves playing basketball.

lavell mcclain

warehouse manager

Endurance scooterer, all round cool, nice guy, proud father, loving husband, Master Griller, probably an understatement. Words escape us, but suffice to say he will be in charge of our Steak Fajita lunches FOREVER. He's also in charge of getting the scooters IN the warehouse door and back OUT again, something that requires Herculean strength, incredible organization and consistent devotion to sending you EXACTLY what you ordered! Probably the biggest Detroit Lions fan you will ever hope to meet, he also knows how to score on the basketball court.

eric hren

staff accountant

Eric is working on his Master's degree in Accounting whilst working at Micro whilst effortlessly entertaining us all day. No problem. Best Detective on the team, Eric has a natural talent for sniffing out fraud (please don't be concerned, there are only a few of you:)). Anyway, he's quite good. Also, we would be lost at sea without Eric's ability to fix broken computers and printers with the wave of a hand. He also generally makes our many systems work, eventually. In his rare spare time he likes to groom his glorious beard, read and ride his Micro Flex Blue, not at the same time.

jamie rau

marketing coordinator

Jamie is an awesome marketer. We are pretty sure she has clones or is an identical triplet. She produces such an impossible amount of work that cloned or tripleted are the only reasonable explanations. A proud wife and mom who also enjoys kayaking, cooking and fur babies, every day is a marketing feast with Jamie around!

katie glendening

account management

In addition to looking after our store clients, Katie is also the mastermind behind some of our best Accessories, from Micro t-shirts to tattoos! She literally never makes any mistakes, which is pretty amazing because she has a billion opportunities - she singlehandedly processes most of our orders, every day (ok, well, she's not in today). She also happens to have an exceptionally nice and fun personality. She is newly-married, loves Northern Michigan and cheers on all the Detroit sports teams.

kris stiffler

Donations & Blog Coordinator

Kris's job is to give away scooters. We pay her to do that because she is so good at it. Sounds easy, we know, but there are a lot of twists and turns. She is amazingly thorough, incredible with details, and the best question-asker ever, something we are admitting without her asking. Just this once. Transplanted from Chicago, she is now thriving here with husband and children. She says working with scooters definitely takes the cake, beating out her previous occupations of teaching and consulting! She is a sci-fi movie geek, as well as a scooter geek. She loves the outdoors, too, nothing geeky about that.
