On Tuesday, Artsy — a free online platform for discovering and purchasing art — announced that Everette Taylor would be joining the company as their new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).
“I am delighted to be joining the team, particularly at this exciting moment in its growth. Personally and professionally, I am committed to the company’s mission of further democratizing the art world, and together with Artsy’s talented and experienced team, I look forward to us realizing that dream faster,” Taylor said in a press release.
The CMO is no stranger to the art world. Some of the biggest names in the industry have recognized this serial entrepreneur numerous times for his talents. Just before this appointment, Everette was CEO of ET Enterprises, a portfolio of businesses that includes PopSocial, MilliSense, ArtX, Southside Fund, Hayver, GrowthHackers, and WAVE. He has also served as the CMO for Skurt (now called Fair), an alternative to traditional car rentals.
In their press release, Artsy’s CEO Mike Steib gushed about Taylor:
“Not only has Everette built several brands, testament to his entrepreneurial drive and business acumen, he is a brilliant and experienced marketer with a passion for the art world and Artsy’s mission. Everette will be a terrific leader and teammate as Artsy grows and we are thrilled to welcome him on board.”
Taylor was also named on Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 in Marketing and Advertising in 2018 and 2019, and The Root 100 list of influential people in 2017. His most recent project, ArtX, aims to help emerging artists increase their visibility while giving these artists the practical resources they need to thrive. Now, he will be joining the largest and leading online marketplace for fine art.
