Robin Shephard

Co-Owner & CEO

“35 years ago, a small group of people set out to design and supply specialist high-end audio solutions to the premium London market. They called their newfound enterprise Cornflake, and trading commenced in 1984. The next 25 years saw the original founder expanding the business offer to provide a wider breadth of home automation solutions.

“Following a decade of working at a number of global technology companies, I went on to build a series of smaller start-ups in the same sector, which included a successful IPO in 2007. I bought Cornflake in 2010 and since then I have steered the business to become the preeminent 'curator of connection’, providing the ultimate intuitive lifestyle solutions for discerning clients in their luxury residences. Using research combined with my own experience of the technology industry, I have identified a key element in the progression of Cornflake. The focus is not just on the technology, but on the exceptional round-the-clock Concierge service and support that our clients receive when partnering with us.

“Following a couple of very strong years of growth, we are now providing the richest variety of experiences to our widest range of clients. This momentum drives us to reimagine the potential of what a home can be, delivering exquisite living environments around the world. At Cornflake, it is our intention to design lifestyle solutions that will truly enhance the lives of our clients and to be the best provider of support at all times. We nurture long-lasting relationships through interactions with our business in order for our clients to live the finest lives in their sensational homes.”

Gary Lewis

Co-Owner & Sales Director

"My mission is to create extraordinary living environments by introducing the most intuitive technology into residential settings and to facilitate how clients can interact with their luxury homes in a life-enriching way. Cornflake introduces the latest technology solutions in home automation, home cinema, lighting and security in some of the most beautiful private luxury homes and residential developments.

“I have developed an in-depth understanding of home technology over the past 25 years. I started as an installation engineer, progressing to become chairman of CEDIA, the global association for the home technology industry (2011-2014). Being a member of the international board at CEDIA, the industry’s only certifying authority, my role was key in helping to shape the formative years of the industry by establishing operational best practices and developing standards that are the backbone of worldwide home technology integration to this day.

“In 2012, Cornflake opened the Smart APP-artment, the UK’s first dedicated experiential showroom in London W1. This environment enables clients to relax in a realistic designer-styled home and to road-test the latest smart technology. It is also used for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for architects, developers and interior designers who are eager to position themselves at the beating heart of digital living.”
