Vincent Staley

Director of Philosophy & Chief Storyteller, Patagonia

Patagonia grew out of a climbing equipment startup, run by self-declared rebels, into a top outdoor gear and clothing brand, advocating for the environment. Today, Patagonia is doing better than ever with current annual sales of over $500 million.

Vincent is the director of philosophy and chief storyteller at Patagonia and has unique insights into the importance of values and building proactive relationships with employees and-, customers as well as with the community. Having worked at Patagonia from the beginning, nearly 45 years, Vincent has been a strong influence in creating Patagonia’s story. The company has differentiated themselves by creating outdoor gear and clothing which are functional, reparable and durable as well as dedicating time, services and at least 1 percent of the sales to help grassroot’ organisations from all over the world. Patagonia’s mission is “business to save our home planet”. Vincent also teaches business and environmental science to students at Yale and knows how to use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
