This new year, the Board of Vastari Group Ltd is pleased to announce promising changes to the Senior Management Team.

Lilian Sylvia Buss has been appointed Chief Product and Operations Officer while Neil Goldsmith joins as Chief Commercial Officer. Francesca Polo, Vastari Co-Founder and former Chief Operating Officer, becomes an advisor to the business.

Bernadine Bröcker Wieder, Co-Founder and Chief Executive, states:

The Board and I are thrilled that Lilian and Neil have joined Vastari. They bring the right mix of skills and experience to take Vastari to the next level, driving real value from our high-touch promotion services and cutting edge technology. We had a strong finish to last year with the successful launch of our new exhibition promotion service, and have big plans for growth in the coming year. We are launching our Reports on Collecting in the Spring, which will highlight the trends in relationships between museums and collectors worldwide, as well as rare insights on the finances behind collecting. Our content-to-venue matches have doubled in the last year to nearly 1,000 exhibition matches, a trajectory we expect to continue in 2020.

I’m incredibly grateful to Francesca for the huge contribution she has made to Vastari since 2013, and I’m looking forward to continuing our partnership in her new advisory role.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients and partners a happy and successful New Year. We look forward to making even more matches for you in 2020.

On her departure from the management team, Francesca says, "whilst I will be focusing on coaching and leadership development in the future, I am excited to keep supporting Vastari in its efforts to innovate and foster exhibition collaborations".

Buss and Goldsmith join the Vastari C-Suite alongside Jordi Cabeza Lopez, Chief Technology Officer, who has been at Vastari since April 2016.


Goldsmith, Bröcker Wieder, Buss and Cabeza Lopez will be heading up the exhibition marketplace into the new year
