Heritage Auctions promotes Leon Benrimon to Vice President of Modern & Contemporary Art
Prior to joining Heritage, Benrimon owned Benrimon Contemporary in New York.



DALLAS, TX.- Heritage Auctions announced that Leon Benrimon has been promoted to Vice President of Modern & Contemporary Art. Benrimon has been instrumental in building the firm’s industry-leading Urban Art category, setting world records for a range of artists including KAWS.

“We are happy to see Leon rise within the company based on his aggressive growth plans for important niches in the Modern & Contemporary Art market,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions.

Benrimon has spent his entire life in the art business. His parents own art galleries and his three siblings all currently work in the art world.




Prior to joining Heritage, Benrimon owned Benrimon Contemporary in New York, where he sold blue chip artworks on the secondary market in association with historical exhibitions, while dedicating himself to representing and supporting emerging, established and mid-career Contemporary artists working in a variety of mediums.

He received his Master’s Degree at Christie’s Education in New York and worked at family-owned galleries on Fifth and Madison Avenues at David Benrimon Fine Art. His specialty is working with new collectors and post-war artists – such as Warhol, Lichtenstein, Prince, Basquiat, Longo, Kusama Haring, Murakami and Hirst, among others.

“I am grateful to the ownership and my colleagues for bringing me into the Heritage family since starting here five years ago,” Benrimon said. “I am proud of the things we have been able to accomplish in such a short time, excited by the incredible growth we are currently experiencing and look forward to our continued expansion in the future.”
