Dustyn Kim appointed Artsy President.

Artsy has announced Dustyn Kim’s promotion to President of the company, effective immediately, becoming Artsy’s first female President.

I am honored to begin a new role at Artsy as President. As the daughter of an artist, I am deeply committed to Artsy’s mission to expand the art market to provide more opportunities to artists globally. I look forward to partnering more closely with Jeffrey in this new role, and working with our whole team to grow our partners’ visibility and increase their artists’ reach on our platform.

Commenting on her transition to President, Dustyn Kim said,

Kim joined Artsy in 2017 and has served as Chief Revenue Officer for the past four years. The first female President in Artsy’s history, Kim will retain her responsibilities overseeing all revenue lines while taking on a broader leadership role across all business and operations functions to support Jeffrey Yin, who was appointed Chief Executive Officer earlier this month. Kim will also take a larger role in corporate development opportunities.

Under Kim’s leadership, Artsy has grown to support over 4,000 galleries, auction houses, art fairs, and institutions in over 100 countries. Kim has been responsible for expanding the gallery business, introducing new tools to facilitate partners’ success and building a marketplace that is welcoming to world-class galleries, from small, tastemaking programs to blue-chip stalwarts.

She has been at the helm of strengthening Artsy’s secondary market offering, developing multiple new selling options for Artsy’s collectors. Kim has also been integral to building the company’s reputation as the most trusted and secure online art marketplace. She has led various initiatives to ensure that Artsy remains at the forefront of cybersecurity, allowing buyers and sellers to transact with confidence across an average of 3,000 miles.

Dustyn is a beloved leader, a committed coach and mentor, and a talented cross-functional executive. I am delighted that she will be stepping into this important role and partnering more closely with me to further grow Artsy, and strengthen the success we drive to our partners and their artists. Her appointment reflects our commitment to leaders with deep institutional knowledge and art world expertise.
