Fred Mouawad is a serial entrepreneur with a proven track record of starting successful and innovative ventures in a variety of industries and in different countries. He has served companies in different positions from being a Chairman, CEO, and/or a board member of several startups and more mature companies. In 1995 he co-founded G Partners a venture capital firm that raised a US$ 50 million fund and made a series of investments in traditional and online retailing ventures. In 1999 he founded Mondera, a pure e-tailer of diamonds and jewellery on the Internet with its head offices in New York. He also founded Instore Magazine which has been voted since 2003 as the best trade magazine for the American jewellery retailers, Itorama Consulting, an IT solutions Company with offices in Bangkok and Bangalore, and Precious Link a company purveying very fine rubies and sapphires to dealers and high-end jewellers around the world. Fred has travelled the world extensively, and has direct experience managing in countries as diverse as the USA, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Thailand and India.
In 1996 Fred started in the food and beverage industry by founding Pizza Corner in Chennai, India with the expectation that the second most populated country in the world would develop rapidly. Based on the early success of this strategy, in 1997 Fred decided to launch “Coffee World” in Thailand. In 2004 Fred formed Global Franchise Architects in Switzerland, and grouped both brands under one Company with the goal of using the same corporate structure to manage multiple brands. In 2004 GFA launched “New York Deli”, and in 2005 its fourth brand “The Cream & Fudge Factory”. This year GFA launched its two more brands “The Donut Baker” in Thailand and India & “Golden Pretzel” in Thailand. We launched our fourth brand in India "The Cream & Fudge Factory" in December '07.
