THE SHEA Family > Aaron Shea

Mr. Aaron Shea

Mr. Aaron Shea is the Global Marketing Director of Ken Yuan and the eldest son of Mr. Armstrong Shea. Under the influence of his father's enthusiasm for knitwear manufacturing, Aaron has developed an interest in the field and has therefore accomplished a textile-business-related degree on BA (Hons) Fashion Design with Marketing in London.

As soon as he graduated, Aaron worked for Selfridges & Co. as a sales consultant in order to gain working experience, and the most importantly, to enrich his knowledge about the fashion and textile industry. He was promoted after a year and became the buyer of Ralph Lauren Women's Black Label consignment store at Selfridges'.

In 2008, Aaron decided to end his career in London and joined Ken Yuan. In the company, Aaron is responsible for raising the whole team's marketing awareness by introducing and presenting the most updated picture of the fashion and textile industry to them. He is also responsible for promoting Ken Yuan's capabilities to different potential clients in the fashion retail market.

Aaron understands that the differences in cultures as well as fashion senses between our staffs in China and clients from the West may possibly hinder communication and cooperation. Therefore, he has been putting efforts to draw the gap closer by developing our merchandisers and artisans' understandings to the demand of our clients' designers.
