Mountain Khakis has added its first outside board member, Dow Bauknight. Bauknight is a former Accenture partner who was responsible for the Global Supply Chain Practice. He also initiated ePValue a global online purchasing company for Accenture, managing concept development, fundraising and the merger with ICG Commerce. He is presently Executive Director of NPower Charlotte Region, Inc., a nonprofit that provides consulting services to other nonprofits.

Bauknight was impressed with the focus demonstrated by Mountain Khakis in going after such a niche outdoor market, as well as their commitment to producing “a comfortable, durable pair of pants that weren’t exceedingly technical.”

“The addition of Mr. Bauknight to our board of directors brings seasoned strategic and business experience to Mountain Khakis as we continue our successful expansion within the outdoor marketplace,” said Mac Lackey, Founding Partner, Mountain Khakis. “His appointment further validates our commitment to building a top quality organization and his impact will be immediate.”
