 Vail Horton Biography

Vail Blackwell Horton is an innovative and passionate entrepreneur. He is making an impact coast-to-coast, through his companies and his involvement in the community nationwide.

Vail born without legs and improper bone growth in his arms, adopted at birth is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Keen Mobility Company and Founder and Chairman of Incight Foundation. Vail has a true calling to change the world for the better. Horton's persistence and tenacity turned into a company, when at age 22 he was prescribed to a wheelchair. Instead of succumbing to life in a wheelchair, Horton invented a crutch with shock-absorbing technology that allowed him to remain vertically mobile.

Keen Mobility Company provides world-class products focused on safety, mobility, and comfort for the disabled, elderly and injured "so they are able to contribute more to society rather than take from society." Vail has now led the company to over $2.5 million in annual sales, 25 different product lines, more than $1.7 million in capital, and 12 employees. Keen Mobility has also been recognized by the Oregon Entrepreneurs Forum as one of the three most successful growth-stage companies in the state, ranked #30 on the 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies List, and was placed on the Governor's Honor Role for Employers of People with Disabilities. Vail has been appointed to the Secretary of State Advisory Committee for Worldwide Disability Policy (invited by Condoleezza Rice for business acumen and proven commitment to the disabled), was recognized as one of the "Top 40 Under 40" executives in the City of Portland by the Portland Business Journal, and announced as an Oregon Healthcare Hero by Senator Gordon Smith on the floor of the US Senate.

Vail, as founder and chairman of Incight Foundation has raised over $750,000 in private and corporate donations, 15 internships have been created, 127 disabled high school students have received college scholarships to date, and five universities have entered matching scholarship programs. Vail will not rest until the current statistics are changed from only 18 percent of people with disabilities receive a college education.

Through motivational speaking, Vail created his own personal organization Handicrap LLC, which educates and moves individuals to acknowledge their boundaries, and to move beyond them. He currently speaks all over the nation and parts of the world.

Vail graduated from the University of Portland and was awarded the Contemporary Alumni Award in 2007. Vail is beautifully married to Elizabeth Ann Horton with their four children Grace, Logan, Katherine and Kelvin. The Horton family makes their home in Portland, Oregon today.
