Susan J Mumford

Founder and CEO

Susan is a sector-supporting entrepreneur for the art market. Having arrived in the UK from the USA in 2000, she ran a gallery in Soho, London, from 2006-11. When the art world entered a new era following the credit crunch, she founded the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), an international multi-chapter non-profit network connecting women and women-identifying art dealers on a global basis. This was followed by the creation of Be Smart About Art, an online-accessible professional development platform that helps creative professionals thrive in a changing world. In 2018, she co-founded ArtAML, a leading technology platform supporting the art market with compliance obligations. ArtAML regularly engages with the UK civil service as a key stakeholder for AML in the art market, and in 2021 provided a response to the U.S. consultation on the subject. 

Based in Lewes, East Sussex, Susan works locally, in London, around the UK, the USA, Continental Europe and online.
