It has been a sad and unsettling week for our organization, with waves of emotions that come and go. Our founder, Phillip Vasyli, was a warm and genuine colleague and friend, and his presence in our lives will be greatly missed. A familiar sight around our San Rafael office, Phil’s charisma and larger-than-life personality never failed to light up a room.
Phil had a deep and profound belief in the people he worked with, and it is this confidence that gives us the strength to move forward, though we do so with heavy hearts. The same drive that guided him as a podiatrist, a healer and an entrepreneur will guide us in honoring his legacy. Phil’s vision is integral to the Vionic philosophy, and we will continue our efforts with his goals at heart.
In recent days we have experienced an overwhelming outpouring of support, for which we are very grateful. These kind words have reaffirmed our dedication to Phil’s mission, and Vionic will strive to achieve it every day going forward.
