Carla Camacho, who has acted as director of sales at Lehmann Maupin for the past seven years, is now a partner at the gallery. “It’s been amazing to develop my career at the same time that Lehmann Maupin has had such tremendous growth,” said Ms. Camacho, who joined the gallery when it had a single location, in Chelsea. Since she arrived, Lehmann Maupin has opened branches on Chrystie Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and, last month, in Hong Kong.
In the spirit of this expansion, Ms. Camacho said she plans to develop both the gallery’s sales team, bringing in “people who maybe have an expertise in a certain field,” and its list of artists. Ms. Camacho has already grown the gallery’s roster, bringing on one of its more recent additions, painter Angel Otero. Although Ms. Camacho declined to go into detail, she said more may be on the way. “We are actively looking at several artists and hope to have some announcements in the near future,” she said.
