Randy Pilon, founder and current president and chief executive officer of Virox Technologies Inc. in Oakville, Ont., is the first “Python” to come on board.
Pilon spent 14 years with Bausch & Lomb, where he rose through the ranks eventually becoming Corporate Vice President of the Canadian subsidiary. In 1998, Pilon founded Virox, a company with a patented technology in disinfection and sterilization. Virox has been included in Profit Magazine’s “Companies to Watch “rankings three times and, in November of 2006, was the recipient of the prestigious Canadian American Business Council Award for business excellence. He will be one of six Halton business moguls who will evaluate and select winners in the first-ever Pythons’ Pit competition, which begins this fall.
