Owner & President
Steve was born and raised in New York City from which he learned one of the great lessons in his life; compete and differentiate yourself or get left behind. Upon graduating from college with a chemistry degree, Steve started his career in the flavor and fragrance industry where he has remained for his entire professional career. After 15 years climbing the corporate ladder at the largest flavor and fragrance company in the world, Givaudan Corporation, he left to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur and become owner of Vigon International in 2008. Since that time, Vigon has been named 7 times to the INC 5000 Fastest Growing Company List, 8 times as one of the Best Places to Work in PA, and Steve recently was named the 2016 E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year in manufacturing for the Greater Philadelphia Area. Steve is a Trustee on several college Boards as well as a member of several non-profit Boards including the Lehigh Valley Pocono Foundation. He also had the opportunity to be the 2015 East Stroudsburg University Commencement Speaker and is part of the ownership team for the Scranton Wilkes Barre RailRiders (i.e. New York Yankees Triple A Baseball Team).
