Vignesh Pillai

I was born in the Southern part of India, Kanyakumari District, Tamil Nadu and raised in the western part of India, Gujarat, Vapi known as land of entrepreneurs.

My father worked as a maintenance technician in paper industry while my mother was a teacher in elementary school. During my school days I was very much fascinated with sports especially cricket because it taught me how to be resilient, disciplined, hardworking, and instilled the quality of working towards a common goal, integrity and more importantly to treat everyone with respect. I represented U16 cricket team for my district and I continue to play in lower mainland tournaments organized by British Columbia Mainland Cricket League in division 2.

I have completed my MBA from the University of Wales, Cardiff with a major in finance. I also have a post-graduation degree in tax management and Bachelor of Commerce with concentration in Accounts & Audit from Vapi, India. I have a certification in Marketing Management – Entrepreneurship from BCIT, Vancouver. It’s been a decade that I have been working within the investment banking and capital market domain and was fortunate to work with a few investment banks from Wall Street at various operational capacity during my stint in India. I joined Dixon Mitchell Investment Counsel in 2021 as a Portfolio Administrator on the Trade Desk team.

In my personal time I like to cook and experience new cuisines, watch spy series, try new sports and eat ice cream!
