A first-generation Canadian, Louie Deligianis was born to Greek immigrants in Toronto and is fully bilingual thanks to spending every Saturday in Greek School from grades 1 to 12.
As a teen, Louie worked alongside his aunt and uncle in a family restaurant where he developed a strong work ethic based on reliability, dedication and respectfulness. A few years after finishing university, in 1995, Louie moved to Vancouver. Here, he developed, as most people do, a love for the west coast and its natural beauty.
Louie initially lived in East Vancouver, Kitsilano and downtown’s West End. When he and wife Maile Deligianis moved to the North Shore just one month before the birth of their daughter, Eva, he knew this was where he wanted to raise his family.
Louie has completed the Canadian Securities Course and has also worked for over 10 years as the Chief Financial Officer for Lonsdale Capital, a family investment business.
Louie enjoys photography, woodworking, gardening and, along with Maile, being a consummate host to friends and family at their home. His natural hospitality and Maile’s culinary talents and experience come together in Kitchen Craft Eatery, the Shipyard District’s oasis above Esplanade.
