ARTnews covers announcement of John Auerbach as UOVO’s new CEO
UOVO, a Queens-based fine art storage and services company with locations in Florida, California, Delaware, and Colorado, has named John Auerbach as its new CEO. Auerbach formerly served in an executive e-commerce role at Sotheby’s for two years, departing in 2019.
