Our Team

Katie Henry

Katie Henry is the Director of Art In Offices, which she founded in 2012. She studied Fine Art Sculpture at Central Saint Martins, and was then Vice President of Students’ Union University of the Arts London. She also has a Masters in Arts Administration and Management from Birkbeck College, University of London, and has completed an accelerator course for creative entrepreneurs. Katie is an active member of the Association of Women Art Dealers.

Katie's vision has always been to make art available to everyone. She has spent the past few years challenging the perception that only FTSE 100 companies can afford art, and has made it her mission to encourage companies of any size to put original art on their office walls by making it affordable. She's a firm believer in art increasing workplace productivity, and the power of art to reflect a company's brand values.

Katie works closely with a select handful of artists ranging from emerging talent to established investment artists like YBA's. Katie has a great eye for spotting emerging talent, and has worked with artists who have gone on to win art prizes, and have solo shows at museums. She is also well known amongst international galleries and has a wide network of fellow art dealers and gallerists.

Bob Henry

Bob is our financial director and strategist. He keeps an overall eye on the company cash flow and advises us on how to best use our hard-earned profits.

Bob has a 47-year history working in finance. He has worked for Midland Bank (now HSBC), GLC, Matrix Group, and spent the last third of his career as a founding partner of Mobeus Equity Limited.

Bob is a history lover and likes a random fact, the weirder the better. He's a world-traveller, a gourmande, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of classic cars.

She’s the lady with the ideas and the lady with the prizes. She regularly plans competitions for our followers where they can win artwork or tickets to events around the country.
