Ken Fonville reports to Fairmont Designs Chairman George Tsai. Headquartered in Orange County, California, Fairmont Designs operates 3 state-of-the-art home furnishings manufacturing facilities in China and 5 retail stores in Shanghai .

Fairmont Designs responds to the increasing environmental awareness among China’s upper middle class with the creation of a new lifestyle brand, NewLeaf. NewLeaf collections will be made of eco-friendly materials, a progressive step taken prior to the enactment of government regulations. Since Fairmont Designs owns and operates its 3 factories, they are able to manage their manufacturing practices to new environmental standards. NewLeaf is scheduled to launch in 2009 at FD’s flag ship store in Shanghai. GRID 2, a consulting firm specializing in branding, is designing NewLeaf’s retail environment.
