Katherine E. Fleming to lead Getty Trust after being named new president and CEO

Starting this August, Katherine E. Fleming will take the reins at the J. Paul Getty Trust, leading the institution’s mission to advance and share the world's art and cultural heritage for the benefit of all






The J. Paul Getty Trust - the world's wealthiest art institution - has named Katherine E. Fleming as its new president and CEO.

Starting her role on August 1, 2022, Fleming succeeds the trust’s longtime leader, Jim Cuno, who will retire later this year.

In her new role, Fleming will oversee the management of all local, national, and global operations of the 1,400-employee Getty Trust and its four component programmes.

The Trust has an estimated endowment of US$7.7bn (€7.12bn, £5.92bn) and operates the J. Paul Getty Museum, which has two Los Angeles locations – the Getty Center in Brentwood and the Getty Villa in the Pacific Palisades. The trust also issues global philanthropic grants supporting the visual arts through the Getty Research Institute, which houses scholars and the world’s largest art archives in the Getty Library, and the Getty Conservation Institute.

“The mission of the Getty is more vitally important than ever, as environmental degradation and global upheaval threaten the world’s artistic and cultural heritage in unprecedented ways,” said Fleming.

“Getty’s remarkable ability to make an impact in Los Angeles and around the world makes it both a huge honour and responsibility to be asked to take on its leadership. I look forward to working with Getty’s many experts to further its mission and to assert the critical relevance of art and the humanities to our diverse shared pasts and our collective future.”

Fleming, who is a professor of Hellenic Culture and Civilization and a professor of History and Hellenic Studies at New York University (NYU), comes to Getty after serving as the NYU provost - the university’s chief academic officer - a role she has held since 2016. Fleming has also held administrative roles of increasing scope and responsibility at NYU since 2004.

“Katherine Fleming is a distinguished scholar and educator. She is a visionary, experienced leader, with an extensive understanding of global cultures and their importance in uniting all of us,” said Getty Board chair David Lee.

“At this critical moment in our world, she is the ideal leader to guide one of the world’s largest, most complex cultural organisations, and to continue Getty’s trajectory of supporting and sharing visual arts and culture for the greater public good.”
