Vionic founder Phillip Vasyli killed

Podiatrist Phillip Vasyli was stabbed to death in his home in Old Fort Bay on New Providence Island, Bahamas, on March 24. He was 59. Bahamian authorities have charged his wife, Donna Vasyli, with his murder.

The Australian podiatrist established several podiatry clinics in Sydney and later founded the Vionic Group, an orthotic footwear company based in San Rafael, CA. He also founded the Vasyli Foundation, which supports international charities working to improve healthcare in poor and underserved communities.

“We are deeply saddened by this sudden loss,” said Chris Gallagher, Vionic Group CEO. “As a Vasyli/Vionic family, we’ll work hard to continue his legacy of changing lives.”
