As the Group Vice President of Fine Art, Fred is our leading brand ambassador and has an outstanding reputation in his field. His responsibilities include cultivating and developing our portfolio in line with the Crown strategy. He is a member of Crown’s Executive Management Group where he provides valuable insight contributing to overall corporate objectives.
Fred’s logistics career started began in 1988 – but since 2000 he has focused specifically on fine art. From 2000 to 2011, he worked with Netherlands-based Gerlach Art Packers & Shippers to develop a global fine art network. He started with acquisitions in Belgium and Germany and then expanded to China on request from a museum in Amsterdam to handle a Rembrandt exhibit in Shanghai. The successful network grew to include partners reaching as far as Russia and Finland.
In 2011 Fred joined Crown Fine Art and has since been instrumental in providing clients with customized service packages, overseeing 16 locations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Fred holds a degree in Logistics from the Harbour & Road Transport Academy and is based in Amsterdam.
