For the past three years she has been Hindman’s chief business development officer. She brings 25 years of experience in private banking, wealth management and fine art appraisals.
Early in her career she led business development at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago, before moving to JP Morgan Private Bank and later art advisory firm Gurr Johns. She returned to Hindman in 2019 (the firm created in the merger of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers and Cowan’s Auctions).
Jay Krehbiel, co-chairman and CEO of Hindman since 2018, appointed Quinlan as his successor in the CEO role. He moves into a new role as executive chairman.
Hindman reported sales of $100m in 2022, a record for the company which has been expanding and now has 16 office locations.
Its planned New York location, details to be announced shortly, includes a full-service auction room – Hindman’s fifth overall – complementing its Chicago, Palm Beach, Denver, and Cincinnati salerooms.
Quinlan is the second woman to serve as Hindman’s CEO, following in the footsteps of her mentor Leslie Hindman who founded the firm in 1982.
