Koni Kim infuses our company with her unique blend of warmth and reverence. More than three decades after starting the company, she still thrives on innovation and inspires her team to embrace new trends, design movements, and develop initiatives.

As someone who cares deeply for other people and the world around her, Koni makes giving back a priority in her life. Her contributions include mentoring young people and female entrepreneurs, and creating Invincible Me, a hospitality-based non-profit that supports shelters for battered women. Koni is a leader in sustainability initiatives, and she unites the hospitality industry through her internet television station, KoniTV.

Whatever business you’re in – it’s a people business,” Koni says. “If you love people and you think you are adding value to their life either personally or in business, that gives really good energy.
