BIOGRAPHY

Robert Stiller was born in United States. Founder of Keurig Green Mountain Bob Stiller made a fortune selling coffee and K-cups, the now ubiquitous single-serve coffee pods. His roughly 5% stake in the Vermont outfit was recently worth more than $1 billion. He lost a big chunk of his fortune in 2012, when he was forced to sell 5 million shares to cover margin calls on loans taken against his position. Stiller got his start selling E-Z Wider cigarette rolling paper in 1971. He sold out in 1981, pocketing $3.1 million pre-tax. He used some of that cash to buy a coffee store near his ski condo in Sugarbush, Vermont; he eventually dropped the retail business to focus entirely on manufacturing, roasting his Green Mountain coffee for big customers like ExxonMobil. In the mid-1990s, he invested $150,000 in what became Keurig. Stiller, who is chairman emeritus, and his wife recently gave $10 million to Fair Trade USA, which certifies products the come from farmers and workers who are justly compensated. They also gave $5 million to the Norton Museum in Palm Beach.
