CEO, Vessi

Economics & Business Minor (2012)

Tony is one of BC’s Top 30 under 30 and featured in the June 2020 BC Business Magazine. Vessi was launched in 2018 with a fully waterproof knit sneaker. As market leaders in this new category, their products drive happiness by enabling people to live without constraints, rain or shine. Vessi believes giving back to the community in ways that create a childlike, puddle jumping happiness feeling.  A pay it forward option with purchase of Vessi supports their community fund program that spark community heroes with micro-grants.

Tony credits the co-op program which gave him the opportunity to travel and see the world from a different perspective. The experience opened up another world of ideas and the creativity hasn’t stopped since.
