Throughout her career, Brenda Vingiello has doggedly analyzed the global macroeconomic environment, as well as individual companies and industries to understand how these elements influence the performance of financial markets. After many years as an equity analyst for large institutional asset managers, Brenda was passionate about bringing this expertise to bear helping individuals. It’s this commitment that drives her work for Sand Hill clients every day.

As our Chief Investment Officer, Brenda manages our in-house team of investment professionals as well as the investment process and allocation. In every area of her work, Brenda’s background as a researcher and analyst enables her to take a step back and make decisions objectively. Brenda extends this valuable skill to our clients by helping them understand how we think about their portfolio and make decisions based on data rather than emotions. She specializes in asset allocation, financial strategizing and modeling, and enjoys being able to help clients achieve their financial goals while simplifying their lives at the same time. In addition to her role as CIO, Brenda serves as the chair of the Sand Hill Investment Committee and is a member of the Executive Committee, a small team charged with setting the firm’s long-term strategic course.

Outside of work Brenda is a dedicated mother who loves spending time with her family and exploring all the Bay Area has to offer. She enjoys discovering new hiking spots and chooses the path less taken (or hiked) whenever possible. Brenda is active in the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, where she sits on the Finance Committee and Board of Governors. She is also involved in a San Francisco-based family winery that she helped her husband establish in 2003 and looks forward to discovering, and tasting, what each vintage has to offer.
