Michael “Mikey” Mohr is a co-founder and serves as the chief executive officer of Houseplant. Mohr oversees all business operations for the brand including product development and innovation, sales and distribution, marketing strategy, geographic expansion and corporate social responsibility efforts.

Mohr began his career in New York in the commercial mortgage backed securities group at Bear Stearns and then moved on to the real estate finance group at Dutch bank ING. After three years in New York, he moved back to Los Angeles where he began privately investing in early stage companies and spent a decade as a partner at MetWest Ventures. Here, Mohr revitalized and operated a number of treasured boutique hospitality properties, which ultimately served as his segue into branding, experience, and business operations. During this time, he was also connecting with long time friend Seth Rogen and cousin Evan Goldberg to lay the foundation for a brand that would bring their shared passion for best-in-class cannabis to the forefront of lifestyle and culture.

Mohr earned his bachelor’s degree with honors in psychology from the University of Michigan and his master’s degree in real estate finance at New York University. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, two children, and Bernedoodle. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, cycling, surfing, yoga, and practicing meditation.
