Navin Manglani obtained his BA from Yale in Economics, and then completed his MBA at Columbia Business School in 2002.
After business school, he served as Managing Director at IE Industries, his family’s privately-held company in the fashion industry. After selling the company, he co-founded and serves as a director of SKMN Investments LP, an investment company with a strong focus on residential real estate. Navin’s involvement in Immigration Equality began as a result of being in a binational relationship. As he spent more time learning about the organization, he cared deeply about the struggles that binational couples and asylum seekers face due to discriminatory immigration practices. Navin co-chaired the Safe Haven Awards and soon after, joined the board. Navin also serves as the Treasurer of the Vanderbilt Condominium (a 340-unit condo in Midtown). He is an avid musician and has served as a principal cellist for the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble. He also loves eating and enjoys blogging about his culinary experiences in New York during his free time on his blog veggiescoop.com.
