Albert Kakudji is the Founder and Director of Kakudji Fine Arts, a company which represents contemporary emerging fine artists and provides an array of services which includes brand management, event planning and art brokerage. Our main focus is providing fine artists with a platform to gain exposure to private and corporate collectors, as well as business executives within the financial services and start-up sector. The inaugural event will take place in Fall 2016 in collaboration with one of the world's leading investment banks.

Mr. Kakudji launched his company as a vehicle to marry his many years in business development with his patronage of the arts. As a long-time, enthusiast of ambitious visual projects and New York City's creative community, Mr. Kakudji maintains strong ties with seasoned art enthusiasts based in Paris, Belgium, South Africa and New York -- a paramount asset in his ability to forecast and showcase not only what's now, but what's next.

In his profession, Mr. Kakudji is an accomplished professional having worked for and consulted with the likes of Merrill Lynch, Lazard, American Express and Legg Mason, as well as a few venture backed and early-stage startups.

Most importantly, Mr. Kakudji devotes a significant amount of his time to philanthropic pursuits, and has sat on various committees for Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, Children's Storefront, African Leadership Academy, Little Sun People and the Starlight Foundation. He is dedicated to empowering underprivileged inner city youth and under-funded emerging artists that are in need of essential resources to become successful.

Mr. Kakudji brings with him a fresh perspective, reflective of the diversity of his upbringing. Raised in Brooklyn, he is of Congolese decent and is the youngest of five siblings who have established themselves in different parts of the world. Currently, Mr. Kakudji lives in New York City with his daughter and enjoys winter sports, African dance and passive securities trading.
