Vinod Jain is responsible for introducing steel as a lifestyle product in India with the setting up of Magppie, India’s leading premiuml home accessories brand. With an annual turnover of Rs 70 crores, Magppie today retails at over 120 outlets in the country and has recently opened its own boutiques across major cities in India.


A pioneer in creating a market for high-end steel accessories, Vinod oversees the entire operations of the company including the design and product ranges that are produced under Brand Magppie.


After his graduation, Vinod worked for his family’s steel business for 3 years, handling their sales office in Mumbai. In 1998 he decided to follow his dreams and set up the first design studio for his company Magppie. Working against the preconceived idea that steel products were not lifestyle accessories, Magppie launched their design collection in India in 2000. By 2004, Magppie was retailing to the international market.


A graduate from Kirori Mal College, Delhi University, Vinod today sits at the helm of a company that has changed the way people perceive steel accessories. Each of his products is a realization of his dream to create a brand that touches people and builds relationships.


Vinod is married and has two children, a son and a daughter. Apart from being involved in the design and product ranges that define Magppie, he likes to read and play tennis in his spare time.
