Work history


Head of Display


Aug 2003 - Dec 2016
  • Working within the Marketing Division, I managed a full-time deputy, a small team of part-timers, and various external contractors, covering all large-format collateral, including window displays. My input varied from design and production of vinyl text titles, to fully themed gallery enhancements, creating immersive exhibitions for some extremely high profile works and collections. I also supported auctions in the other European selling centres; Paris, Amsterdam, Geneva, Zurich, and Milan, with exhibition signage, posters and other gallery enhancements.
