Mounir Zok

Mounir Zok joined the U.S. Olympic Committee as a Senior Sports Technologist in 2012. He is responsible for championing, setting up and running high­performance technology programs that increase the medaling chances of Team USA athletes at the future Olympic and Paralympic Games; such programs usually lie at the intersection of emerging technology and human­centered design to deliver the next generation of data­driven tools that Olympic and Paralympic programs can utilize. In this role, he leads and manages a group of internal and external individuals (technologists, engineers, data scientists, hardware/software developers, designers, business partners) as well as work very closely with the US Olympic Committee’s leadership to ensure alignment with organization policies and strategies. Given the innovative topics that he deals with on a daily basis, he is very firm in adopting lean & agile approaches that allow for iterating small­scale tests to validate all concepts at every point of development. Prior to joining the USOC, Zok helped grow a sports technology start-up company in Italy into an internationally renowned firm in technology development. Specifically, he led and coordinated staff and assisted in developing businesses in foreign countries.
Through innovative thinking and scientific knowledge, he managed the team behind developing various sports technology applications that are currently being used at a number of sports organizations in Italy. Zok holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, speaks at major national and international conferences and meetings on technology and innovation, and is fluent in 4 languages. He currently lives with his wife and 2 children in Colorado Springs, USA.
