Moniker Group encapsulates eight companies and 10 brands from event production to high-end artisan furniture, all under a single moniker.
The vertically integrated company has experienced tremendous growth since first touching down in Point Loma’s Liberty Station neighborhood with the launch of their modular retail shop and café, Moniker General, in 2016.
Part of Moniker’s current expansion within the former Naval station, is a partnership with Del Mar’s Van De Vort boutique. Van De Vort is opening a new outpost this summer and joining Moniker General.
Van De Vort will offer fashions for free spirited females alongside Moniker’s curated selection of men’s clothing, accessories, and home goods.
Ryan Sisson, founder/CEO of Moniker, a real estate/lifestyle/hospitality collective, has spent the last eight years building a brand out of the California lifestyle.
Increasing full-time staff from five to 50 employees in nearly two years, today Moniker unites a talented roster of young designers, builders, fabricators and other creative individuals who operate Moniker Made, Moniker Design, Moniker Real Estate, Moniker Warehouse, Moniker General, Moniker Coffee and Moniker Commons in Liberty Station, as well as the newly formed Moniker Events.
Having acquired a new lease on a 9,000-square-foot building directly adjacent to his one-year-old waterfront co-working hub (Moniker Commons), Sisson has moved his collective to Liberty Station this summer.
The new headquarters house an entire design and fabrication facility, and Moniker’s real estate, lifestyle, and events teams, alongside company management. A total of 5,000 square feet serves Moniker Group, while the remaining space has welcomed the expansion of Moniker Commons.
“Moniker has grown a lot over the years. As we grow, we create opportunity to have a greater impact on people both within our company, but also within our surrounding San Diego community,” said Sisson. “Growth requires space both for our team and for our concepts. Liberty Station has become a hub of sorts over the last couple of years allowing Moniker to create and develop new concepts and build towards the future.”
Sisson noted the vision of Liberty Station “fits so well with that of Moniker, and so it seems to be a natural fit that we would move the remaining elements of our company into the neighborhood.”
We’re excited to continue to serve and support the Liberty Station community all the while providing a truly special location for our Moniker team to call home. This is going to be a great new season for us and I can’t wait to see the doors that open because of our deeper connection to the community around us.”
