Paul Munn

Graduated from Byam Shaw School of Art, Notting Hill Gate, London, in 1977 Business and Marketing DIP, London Polytechnic, 1983.

Starting business life in a London Bank, Paul immigrated to Australia in 1984 and went on to work for various companies before setting up his own business in 1988.

Becoming involved in Import / Export in 1993, his company Coco Imports supplied a number of major retail groups with giftware and furniture in the UK, including John Lewis, A.I.S. and House of Fraser, before entering the Hospitality Project Business in 2003.

Designs Inc. (Group Designs Pty Ltd) has established itself as one of the leading hospitality project suppliers and recently moved its headquarters from Melbourne, Australia, to Bali, Indonesia, which is seen as a strategic move to be closer to its manufacturing arm.

Paul and his family have taken up the challenge by moving to Indonesia to start the next phase of the company’s growth.
