Kevin E. Skipper, President

Kevin E. Skipper spearheaded efforts to form VISTA Truth Inc., a nationwide non-profit corporation, in April 2014 after recognizing an imminent need for an industry alliance in the face of pending FDA regulations and numerous proposals for state and local laws that were increasingly infringing on the rights of vaping industry businesses. As owner of Vaping Convention Circuit, he was concerned about the possible decimation of the vaping industry, the only industry offering combustible tobacco users a viable alternative nicotine delivery method beyond the openly available, and known lethal, tobacco products. A former 1.5 pack per day cigarette smoker for 15 years, he switched to vaping in February of 2013. Kevin earned a BA in Business Administration & Management from Saint Leo University and a Law degree from The University of Wales (Aberystwyth) and practiced as a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator immediately prior to his involvement in the vaping industry.

It is our duty and responsibility to defend our rights as vapers and business owners; a unified effort is the only approach that will save the industry we have all grown so passionate about. We know first hand that vaping works as an alternative to tobacco use. VISTA will proactively advocate for vaping industry businesses via professional lobbyists and other legal means to protect our business interests. I encourage every vaping business both in America, and overseas with an interest in the U.S. market, to join VISTA today.“ -Kevin E. Skipper, President
