The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has announced the election of three new members to its board of trustees: Allison Berg, Troy Carter, and Carter Reum. The appointment brings the total number of voting trustees to fifty-one, in addition to fifteen individuals honored as life trustees.
“With LACMA’s ambitious building campaign underway, we value these forward-thinking leaders who have a vested interest in shaping the cultural landscape of Los Angeles,” said LACMA CEO and director Michael Govan. The museum’s board cochairs Tony Ressler and Elaine Wynn added, “We are confident that Allison, Troy, and Carter will add unique perspectives that will further bolster the museum’s overall objectives.”
Berg, a freelance journalist, modern and contemporary art collector, attorney, and philanthropist, writes about art and design for a number of publications, including C Magazine and Hamptons Magazine. Currently, Berg is on the boards of the American Friends of the Israel Museum, the Zimmer Children’s Museum, Today’s and Tomorrow’s Children Fund at UCLA, and the Advisory Council for the Arts at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She is also an active member of councils at Artadia, the Mistake Room, LA MoCA, and Dia Art Foundation.
Carter is the founder and CEO of Atom Factory and cofounder and managing partner of Cross Cultures Ventures. He serves as the global head of creator services at Spotify, overseeing the company's relationships with artists, songwriters, and record companies. His forays into the tech world resulted in the formation of a fund that made early investments in Uber, Lyft, Dropbox, and Warby Parker, among other companies. Troy also serves on the board of trustees for the Aspen Institute and has also appeared as a “guest shark” on ABC’s “Shark Tank.”
Reum is an innovative entrepreneur who cofounded M13, a Los Angeles–based brand development and investment company that accelerates businesses at the nexus of consumer products, technology, and media. Carter began his career as an entrepreneur at Champ Ventures in Sydney, where he scouted and helped incubate young start-up companies. He later joined Goldman Sachs in New York as an investment banker and worked with clients including Honeywell and Lockheed Martin. After leaving investment banking, Carter and his brother Courtney Reum established VEEV Spirits.
