Bettina Korek, currently executive director of Frieze Los Angeles, will take on the role of CEO at the Serpentine Galleries in March 2020. Korek has been at Frieze for a year, overseeing the launch of the Los Angeles edition of the fair.
The appointment comes after the previous CEO Yana Peel stepped down in June of this year. Peel resigned after The Guardian revealed she was the co-owner of a Novalpina Capital, a private equity firm with a majority stake in NSO Group, an Israeli technology company that produced spyware used by authoritarian governments for surveillance.
