NEW YORK – Bonhams announces the appointment of two regional representatives in the US: Kate Stamm will bring her expertise to the Southeast and Florida region, while Brandon Kennedy will cover the state of Texas. In their roles, Stamm and Kennedy will establish new relationships and source works in their regions while connecting clients with specialists in more than 60 categories and providing access to a network of collectors across the globe.

As regional representative for the Southeast and Florida region with a specific focus on Naples and Palm Beach, where she is based, Kate Stamm will rely on her wide range of expertise across jewelry, European furniture, decorative arts and fine art, in addition to years of experience working with private collections and estates, museums and institutions. Prior to joining Bonhams, Stamm was a regional representative and specialist for Palm Beach and South Florida at Hindman Auctions. During that time, she most notably brought to auction the iconic Philip and Mary Hulitar estate, the Commodore Perry-August Belmont estate, and one of the most expensive flawless diamonds sold by the firm in recent years. Stamm’s dedication to the region extends to her participation in organizations such as the Palm Beach Symphony, the Norton Museum of Art, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Palm Beach Chamber and the Society of the Four Arts.

Based in Dallas, Brandon Kennedy’s appointment to regional representative will cover the state of Texas with a focus on the Dallas and Houston areas. Kennedy joins Bonhams after running the Dallas location of galerie frank elbaz of Paris as a partner and director. Prior to that role, he was the director of exhibitor relations at the Dallas Art Fair for several years, where he worked year-round with international galleries and assisted with programming for the annual event. Kennedy also brings a wealth of auction house experience as well from Dallas Auction Gallery and Heritage Auctions, where he specialized in the categories of rare books and modern and contemporary art and design. In addition, Kennedy writes regular columns in the North Texas art magazine Patron and he contributes to several other publications.
