Vincent Fremont Named CEO of Artnews

Vincent Fremont has been named CEO of Artnews, reports Businesswire. The chairman of the supervisory board of parent company Artnews, Dan Gardner, spoke about the appointment today, calling Fremont “a widely respected forty-year veteran of the New York contemporary art scene, dating back to his days working alongside Andy Warhol.”

A key player in the establishment of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc., Fremont served as the foundation’s exclusive sales agent for Warhol’s works from 1991 to 2010. He has also been vice president of Andy Warhol Enterprises and executive manager of Andy Warhol’s studio.

The previous CEO and publisher of Artnews, Izabela Depczyk, resigned at the end of last year, on the heels of last summer’s announcement that Artnews and Art in America would be merging, as previously reported here.
