Kalisher announced that Kati Kulcsar joined the firm as an account director. Kulcsar will report in conjunction with Kalisher’s art curator, Heather Stewart, in support of Kalisher’s luxury art consulting efforts.
Kulcsar has been curating art for six years for art consulting firms in Atlanta, Ga., delivering art collections for Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons and other luxury and boutique properties. Her passion for the arts was instilled early on, when an uncle who was an artist made a strong impact on her early life. As early as the age of three, Kulcsar always knew she wanted to be an artist. She followed her passion for art, ultimately receiving a BFA in painting, and has used this passion to cultivate art collections that speak to the brand of the hospitality project and its specific mood and design scheme.
According to company founder and president Jesse Kalisher, Kalisher is redefining art consulting for the next decade by being the only hospitality company to offer curated and commissioned pieces from outside artists, custom in-house art and exclusive images from Conde Nast and Saturday Evening Post, and more than 100 years of photographs and illustrations that these publications hold.
Kulcsar will head up Kalisher’s Cleveland office. Account director Brian Helder, ASID heads Kalisher’s West Coast office in Palm Springs, Calif. Kalisher is headquartered in Carrboro, N.C., which houses the rest of the account management team, including account director Sara Easterling.
