SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, one of the nation's leading and most trusted auction houses, will expand its regional reach to Scottsdale. With headquarters in Chicago, this will be the firm's seventh location in addition to Denver, Milwaukee, Naples, Palm Beach and St. Louis.
Helping facilitate the expansion is Logan Browning, who recently joined Leslie Hindman Auctioneers as director of business development for the Scottsdale office. Browning, a Tucson native, has worked in the Scottsdale market for years as the director of Larsen Gallery and Larsen Art Auction. She received her BA from University of Arizona, her MA from Sotheby¹s Institute of Art and is a board member and past president of the Women¹s Metropolitan Arts Council (WoMAC), a support organization of Phoenix Art Museum.
"After seven fruitful years with Larsen Gallery and Larsen Art Auction, I am excited to be joining the team at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. I look forward to further cultivating the diverse Southwest market and building our presence in this fast growing territory," said Logan Browning.
"Logan has all of the relevant experience and is well connected in the community. We pride ourselves on exceptional client service, focusing on local representation within our established global market," said Leslie Hindman, founder and CEO of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers.
The Scottsdale location's initial focus will be on business development, assisting with the appraisal and consignment of individual items and entire collections. Property will be sent to Denver and Chicago to be sold at auction.
"Logan will be working closely with our Denver office, which conducts multiple Arts of the American West auctions each year in addition to managing consignments for our fine jewelry, fine art and furniture departments," said Hindman. "We have received so many wonderful consignments from the region that it only makes sense to further expand our presence."
Leslie Hindman Auctioneers conducts more than 60 auctions annually, presenting items representing more than 10 collecting categories such as fine jewelry and timepieces, contemporary art, 20th century design, rare books, furniture, decorative arts and more.
