Berlin / New York, January 12, 2022: Artnet AG, the leading platform for art market data and media, and the global marketplace for fine art online-only sales, is excited to announce that Alana Lynch has joined Artnet as Chief Operating Officer as it sets to accelerate its development and growth in 2022 and beyond. Lynch will be instrumental in accellerating the operational development, innovation, and growth in this increasingly fast-paced market.

Alanna is a strategic and innovative executive, with deep experience driving organizational efficiency, relevancy, and growth for the companies she has led, and for the brands she has built. “I joined the team at Artnet first and foremost because I believe in the mission to make buying, selling, and collecting art as simple and efficient as possible. This ambition feels more relevant now than ever, as the art market continues its digital transformation and embraces new modes of art and new ways of doing business,” says Alanna. “Together with the incredible team at Artnet, I look forward to driving the company’s next phase of growth, and cementing Artnet’s purpose and necessity in the lives of the modern collector.”

Alanna was previously the CEO of The New York Times experience agency, which helped brands such as BMW, Nike, and Hermes Design and build immersive experiences at the intersection of visual art, creative technology and social storytelling. While in this role she led the successful merger of two New York Times companies, implemented a new company strategy and operational plan, and launched a series of new advertising products.
Prior to The New York Times, Alanna was the Managing Director of Chandelier, a New York based creative agency known for their work with luxury brands such as Cartier, retail giants such as Target and innovators like Virgin. While at Chandelier, she partnered with c-level clients to establish and execute their brand strategy, oversaw all company operations and personnel and led the expansion of the company into Los Angeles and Hong Kong.

“Alanna brings a wealth of experience with her and will be an enormous asset to the team,” said artnet CEO Jacob Pabst. “As a technology company, we pride ourselves on offering a robust, seamless, and efficient service for our customers – and in our internal operations as well. I am thrilled to start 2022 with such a stellar addition to the artnet family, a person with the experience to push our growth strategy.”
