Crown Fine Art has recruited David Gosling, formerly of the Imperial War Museum, as Technical Project Manager with a remit to enhance an already experienced team and ensure quality of service. Crown provides secure transportation, storage, installation and de-installation services for the world’s museums, art galleries, auction houses and private collectors; and Gosling arrives with impressive credentials in the industry. He spent seven years at the Imperial War Museum, working first as Head of Documentation and then Head of Movement & Storage and will oversee the delivery of technical art handling and project management services in his new role.

Gosling said: “I have always been keen to move into the commercial sector and this is a perfect opportunity. It is a big move to a highly respected company and one I am relishing. “The focus is on quality, from site visits to assess object movements to supporting the technicians. I will be involved in managing projects from beginning to end. “It was made very clear to me, too, that Crown Fine Art is a highly ambitious company that wants to grow, working on a wide range of projects; and that’s something that excites me.” Gosling has extensive experience of art handling having also worked in management roles at the Horniman Museum, National Portrait Gallery and National Maritime Museum. The 39-year-old, who lives in Crystal Palace and has a Masters degree in Heritage Management from Salford University, will be based in London.
