Former Cheim & Read Partner Adam Sheffer Joins Pace

New York’s Pace Gallery announced today that it appointed Adam Sheffer as its vice president. Sheffer most recently served as partner and sales director at Cheim & Read and has held leadership roles at the Art Dealers Association of America since 2005. Sheffer will work closely with Pace’s president and CEO, Marc Glimcher, as well as the gallery’s staff, to support its international program. He will assume his responsibilities in August.

“Adam is an extraordinary talent in our world,” said Glimcher. “He brings an inclusive, collegial spirit and innovative leadership style to his work with artists, curators, collectors, and peers—forging lasting relationships based on trust and grounded in a passion for supporting artists’ work and legacies.” He added that Sheffer “embodies the spirit of curiosity and deep respect for artists that has infused Pace since its founding in 1960; we look forward to welcoming Adam to the gallery.”
