ALWAYS ONE TO COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES, SURROUND HERSELF WITH INTERESTING PEOPLE AND IMMERSE HERSELF IN CULTURES, KELLY BROWN HAS A DISTINCT APPROACH TO BUSINESS AND LIFE THAT INSEPARABLY WEAVES THE TWO TOGETHER.

"DESIGN, ARCHITECTURE, FOOD AND WINE ARE MY PASSIONS AND I FIND THEY ALL HAVE A NATURAL, SYMBIOTIC RELATION TO ONE ANOTHER.  FOR EACH TO BE SUCCESSFUL THERE MUST BE AN INTELLIGENT APPROACH THAT CREATES PERFECT STRUCTURE AND ELEGANCE TO PROVOKE AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE" SAYS BROWN.  

BROWN DISCOVERED WINE AS A UNIVERSITY STUDENT IN CALIFORNIA AND HAS NEVER LOOKED BACK.  HAILING FROM CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK CITY, SHE HAS CONSISTENTLY WORKED IN GLOBAL WINE SALES AND MARKETING.

WORKING ALONGSIDE LUXURY CONSUMER BRANDS, GAVE HER THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE EXCEPTIONAL CONSUMER-PRODUCT EXPERIENCES AND WORK WITH A WIDE RANGE OF TALENT.  

"I LOVE BRINGING PRODUCTS TOGETHER IN WAYS THAT ARE DIFFERENT & DYNAMIC.  THAT DOESN'T MEAN WEIRD, OFTEN RE-INTERPRETING A CLASSIC IS FAR MORE INTERESTING, WHICH IS WHAT WE LIKE TO DO AT FOXES ISLAND" SAYS BROWN.  

"FROM THE SUBTLE YET IMPORTANT HERRINGBON DETAIL ON OUR LABEL TO OPENING AN UNCONVENTIONAL CELLAR DOOR IN AUCKLAND'S PONSONBY SHOPPING DISTRICT.  A CITY CELLAR IS NOT EXACTLY INGENIOUS BUT WE ARE THE ONLY ONES DOING IT; ULTIMATELY ALLOWING US TO CONNECT WITH OUR CONSUMERS IN MORE MEANINGFUL WAYS."  

"...AND JUST AS I DID IN THE STATES, WE WORK WITH COMPANIES WITH SIMILAR PHILOSOPHIES TO CREATE NEW CONNECTIONS FOR BOTH US AND OUR CLIENTS.  I LOVE TO SEE PEOPLE BUZZ WITH GENUINE EXCITEMENT."
