A highly successful business consultant and entrepreneur and the first blind person in history to win the prestigious National Ensign Sailing championship, Vince Morvillo embodies a lifelong belief that “what is… is not all there is… nor all that can be.” Anything is possible when you see other solutions.
A long-time resident of Houston, Texas, he received his MBA from the University of Houston, graduating in the top 2% of his class.
Vince was born blind, but far from being defeated by his disability, he learned that blindness could be a catalyst for creativity. Not being able to see as others do forced Vince to approach even commonplace situations in a non-conventional way, literally to see things differently. Applying this way of thinking to other pursuits – replacing sight with vision – has led to extraordinary achievements in business and in his personal life.
Over a long and successful career in venture capital and as a business consultant, he has engineered several business turnarounds and helped many companies increase bottom-line performance.
With no outside financial support, Vince personally built one of the largest yacht sales organizations on the Gulf Coast, taking it to profitability in just two years.
Reflecting on his approach, Vince has developed a practical, step-by-step method to help businesses and individuals redirect their way of thinking. As a motivational speaker to large audiences – and in workshops with small groups and business teams – Vince shows how to see other solutions, break down the barriers and achieve success.
Passionately devoted to his sport, his community and to helping others, Vince was 1992’s Yachtsman of the Year and received Houston’s Good Skipper Award for community service. He was also named an Honorary Admiral in the Texas Navy for outstanding achievement and community service.
