“Creativity takes courage” – Henri Matisse.
Joe Reece has worked in the finance arena for over 30 years previously holding Executive positions at Credit Suisse and UBS. Currently, he is the CEO of Helena Capital and the Executive Chairman of SilverBox Capital. Joe was introduced to contemporary art over 20 years ago and has been an avid and engaged collector ever since. He was formerly on the Board of the New York Foundation for the Arts and is a huge supporter of, and advocate for, emerging artists. While his collection includes painting, photography and sculpture of established artists, his passion is for discovering new artists, often becoming a long-term mentor to them while still maintaining his uncanny resemblance to Sean Connery or Billy Bob Thornton! 🙂
