Founded by Mark Sonneborn, Sunborn Shading Solutions has been serving hospitality, healthcare, design firms, and purchasing groups for more than 30 years. Mark started his career in window coverings in 1980, working for a large wholesale fabricator, establishing their commercial division in Florida. He later joined Hunter Douglas Window Fashions helping to establish their commercial division in 1989. He was the creator and director of the Hospitality Business Unit for Hunter Douglas, Inc.

Gary Avant, our Senior Project Manager, has extensive knowledge of installation, job site conditions, and multiple product lines. Starting his career at a young age with a small “Mom & Pop” drapery shop, then moving into manufacturing and eventually his own global installation company, he often says that he never would have believed that a drapery installer would be flown around the world to hang window treatments. As an installer for more than 34 years, he has seen just about everything there is in the window covering industry. He continues to work with designers, architects, contractors and installers to keep our projects moving smoothly and efficiently from budgeting to final installation.

Our support staff is our strength, they are an amazing team that keeps every other aspect on track. Everyone on our team is busy, but they are never too busy to pay attention to the smallest details and go the extra mile to make every experience with Sunborn the best it can be. They make everyone around them work harder, think smarter, and bring their best selves to the table.

Your project requires everyone to step up to the plate and deliver the absolute best work, Sunborn will meet or exceed your expectations. Our company’s success is a direct result of how well this team works together.
