Jamie Ford is our newly-appointed Managing Director of Asia Pacific and she'll be leading Rise Art's expansion into Asia. Jamie has extensive experience in cross-cultural, interdisciplinary management and cultivation. She has spearheaded strategic initiatives in both the US and Greater China.
Jamie's appointment comes as Rise Art looks to expand internationally. Over the last two years, we've hosted a handful of pop-ups and events in Hong Kong. Now we'll be doubling the size of our operations and customer service team to support this growth.
Earlier this month, Rise Art CEO Scott Phillips and Curatorial Director Matthew Hockley Smith (above) joined Jamie in Hong Kong to host a number of events focused on the rise of digital platforms and China's place in the global art market.
